For our first vintage we’ve put together a rosé spritzer made from the English Rondo grapes. Rondo is an amazing grape for English wine. It’s very well suited to our cool climate as it’s an early ripener. Its berries have a deep red flesh and the rosé wine we’ve produced is bursting with summer fruit notes and provides a vibrant base for our light and refreshing spritzer – summer in a can!
We are a drinks company born out of, and inspired by, our small urban vineyard on our allotment in central Bristol. We planted just 30 vines back in 2017 and while our first vintage was fermenting last year (strictly for our personal stash!) much bigger ideas were brewing. We bought a truckload of English grapes from a lovely little vineyard in sunny Essex (Sandyford Vineyard) and have produced a fine rosé wine which we've blended into a Spritzer.
See our launch video below.
We’ve decided to use cans for our spritzer because they are the most sensible option from a sustainability perspective
Our 250ml cans are a super convenient size and very quick to chill down so they’re ready for that perfect picnic
Aluminium is infinitely recyclable in a closed loop recycling system (the best sort). Cans are also lightweight saving on unnecessary transport emissions
CORN STARCH LABEL
For our label we’ve utilised a compostable corn starch wrap to avoid plastics wherever possible
We’ve partnered with the lovely ALEX LUCAS, a.k.a. LUCAS ANTICS who is responsible for the artwork on our lovely cans turning them into collectors items with the stroke of her brush. We’re looking forward to collaborating with her in future as we expand our range of deliciousness for your enjoyment.
NANIA’S URBAN VINEYARD
Nania’s Vineyard was planted as a passion project by documentary cameraman James Bayliss-Smith and Shelley Nania. We inherited a 50 year old grape vine in our garden and subsequently caught the wine bug. We planted a small vineyard on our allotment behind our family home in Montpelier, right in the heart of Bristol. It’s where we spend most of our time and we named it Nania’s Vineyard, taking Shelley’s super cool family name belonging to her Persian-Indian grandfather. Phiroze Nania was a Parsi from Mumbai who sailed from India to England in the 50’s and never looked back. He married a beautiful Irish woman and the UK branch of the Nania clan was born. We’re carrying on his adventurous spirit in everything we do at Nania’s Vineyard!
