Welcome to Fox & Fox

At Fox & Fox we are a Boutique Grower Producer of English Sparkling wines, cultivating 30 acres of classic champagne varieties. Our Vineyards sit either side of the ancient hilltop village of Mayfield, amongst the rolling hills, woodlands and deep-cut ghylls of the Sussex High Weald. They are surrounded by bluebell woods in springtime and over-flown by Buzzards, Red Kites and other hawks in summer. They are an evocation of this unique Sussex countryside at its best.

Our History

We’ve been growing vines since 2004 and producing wine since 2009. In 2010, we expanded from our first vineyard site to a second larger vineyard, whilst remaining true to our first love: making limited quantities of Award winning quality Sparkling Wines with a unique English twist. Within our two vineyards we grow Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. A mixture of medium yielding Burgundy clones, which mature richly in our High Weald terroir, alongside Champagne clones for structure. This carefully selected combination allows us to create wines with enticing fruit flavours, aroma & complexity.


With over a decade as grower-producers under our belt we find that we are constantly learning and putting new ideas to work – especially in the vineyards, where every season has its challenges and our constant goal is to grow the best quality grapes possible. Soil, Site & micro-climatic variation exhibit even between vineyards 3 miles apart, while individual vineyard parcels often require a bespoke approach to soil nutrition, pruning & cultivation.

We are privileged to work with a skilled and highly talented team of experts, which we have assembled over the years and who work with us at every stage of growing our vines and making our wines.


In the winery, we’re more traditional: we aim for cool fermentations and minimal manipulation to create wines that speak of their vintage and cool climate East Sussex origins. The emphasis is on minimal intervention in the vineyard & light manipulation in the winery. Quality is favoured over quantity. Huge attention is taken to getting perfect fruit to the winery.

We love wine, all wine and spend a lot of time tasting and thinking about sparkling wine in all its glorious forms.


Our aim is simply to make limited quantities of top quality English Fizz that reflects the specialness of our East Sussex High Weald surroundings, its soils, topography and microclimates. Our wines are the result of that critical evaluation and a desire to create interesting and delicious cuvées for wine lovers and occasional drinkers alike. We make for those who like to revel in the differences between vintages, tasting the changing nuance of season, place & vineyard parcel. With our limited-edition cuveés we mix traditional winemaking skills with contemporary innovation in our quest for the perfect English Fizz.

Welcome to Fox & Fox, we do hope you enjoy our wines.

"A platinum award winner, which is top of the top, from England, home grown, this is Fox & Fox from Sussex. I'm so delighted that they've won. Putting England on the map, it really shows the calibre is there. The zing, the brightness!"
Olly Smith, Saturday Kitchen on Tradition 2014
"Lovely creamy aromas balanced with aromatic strawberry notes... Fragrant stewed strawberries, red cherry & a hint of sour rhubarb... Long, profound length, with minerality adding to the complexity. (Tradition 2014)"
Decanter Platinum 2019 | 97 Points
"This characterful Pinot Gris-based blanc de blancs (Inspiration 2013) is rich in colour, aroma and flavour. Intensely creamy but refreshingly dry with bread and spiced apple aromas full of energy and life"
Susie Barrie MW
"With a creamy palate and smooth, honed fruit, the 2013 Mayfield Tradition Blanc de Noirs – made from pinot noir and pinot meunier – is lovely and harmonious."
