    What is Fruit Wine?

     

    It may sound a little counterintuitive to call a specific type of wine ‘fruit wine’. All wine is made from fruit, isn’t it?

    Yes, it is, but traditionally, ‘wine’ refers to any grape-based variety and ‘fruit wine’ encompasses everything else, including floral wines such as Elderflower wine. Fruit wine can be made from virtually any plant matter that can be fermented, which means there are almost limitless possibilities!

    All of these wonderful fruits can produce juice that can be used to create a fruit wine like our smooth, full-flavoured Cherry Wine, or blended to make complex, delicious fruit-filled mixes like our Summer Berry Wine!

    Fruit wines typically have comparable alcohol levels to traditional wine, somewhere between 10-15%, but can come in low alcohol forms like cider. In the UK, fruit wine is also called country wine.


    Meet Our Winemakers

    James Lambert


    Head Winemaker and MD

    James started his winemaking career at a young age. Cutting his teeth in the wine labs at Broadland Drinks, testing 20 to 30 wines per day, he enrolled on a wine appreciation course led by Frank Leatherdale. James credits Frank’s knowledge, enthusiasm and passion, for setting him on his career journey into wine.

    He quickly moved onto his first WSET course, and his passion for wine was set. He started a tailor-made role within Broadland, looking after wine quality and working with various winemakers worldwide.

    In 2006, drawn by Lyme Bay Winery’s ambition to plant a vineyard and make still English wines, he took the job and relocated to Devon. While others had already shown that sparkling English wines of real quality could be made, he felt that still wines had significantly more potential.

    Nathan Maddocks


    Assistant Winemaker

    Nathan has been with Lyme Bay for eight years, starting in production and despatch and moving to the winery six years ago, where he found his passion. Lyme Bay enrolled him on a wine course at the renowned Plumpton College, which he put into practice straight away at his first harvest.

    He was particularly keen to work on the red wines as the last time Lyme Bay made red was a small batch in 2016. He describes it as very different from making white wine as you have to keep on top of it and constantly nurture it, giving it regular punch-downs and pump-overs (which sounds violent but definitely nurturing!).

    Nathan was a valuable member of the 2020 harvest winemaking team, working the gruelling night shift. Along with the rest of the team, he agrees that the 2020 fruit was the best we’ve seen.

    Sarah Massey


    Assistant Winemaker

    Sarah joined Lyme Bay in 2019, just before harvest. Before that (she describes herself as a ”travelling winemaker”), she worked at wineries in California, Australia and Burgundy. She wasn’t planning on staying for longer than one harvest at Lyme Bay Winery but enjoyed it so much she decided to lay her hat down.

    During the 2020 harvest, Sarah worked the day shift and was astounded at the quality of the fruit, crediting it with a ripeness she has never seen in English grapes before and is excited about the wines we’re creating from this harvest.

    Sarah is also working on her own unique project creating a small batch of sauvignon blanc, which is looking great and will be ready to release later this year.
