More Info: White Castle is a 10 acre, family-run vineyard near the towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth. Robb and Nicola planted their first vines in 2009 and have carefully selected the varieties that are best suited to the soil and micro climate. They currently grow Pinot Noir, Seyval Blanc, Siegerrebe, Phoenix, Regent, Rondo & Cabernet Franc.
Only around 530 bottles of this LBV port-style wine is made every year, making it the perfect fortified wine for a special occasion or a unique gift.
Regent grapes were hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel tanks and barrel aged before bottling, numbering by hand and sealing with wax.
