NANIA'S VINEYARD

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.

OUR WINE

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!

SUSTAINABLE

We’ve decided to use cans for our spritzer because they are the most sensible option from a sustainability perspective

EASILY CHILLABLE

Our 250ml cans are a super convenient size and very quick to chill down so they’re ready for that perfect picnic

INFINITELY RECYCLABLE

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

OUR SPRITZER

To complement our rosé we have added a touch of raspberry shrub from our friends at the Bristol Syrup Company.  Then, to make it extra refreshing and thoroughly quaffable we’ve added a touch of sparkle and blended it all with crystal clear Glastonbury spring water drawn from the legendary spring beneath Glastonbury Tor – magical water, steeped in myths and heroes!

OUR ARTIST

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!
