BRANDS WE LOVE
The Uncommon – Locally Grown. Sustainably Made. Always Bubbling.
The Uncommon has arrived, breaking tradition for the better making beautiful, high quality wines so much more fun.
Though their English sparkling wines and spritzers may be playful, they have no intention of playing with the planet.
They grow their grapes within 50 miles of London, all of which come together at their winery in Surrey. Each wine and spritzer is made using the finest hand-picked grapes; champagne varietals of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay accompany England’s answer to Sauvignon Blanc – Bacchus. These award-winning locals are then canned in specially designed fully recyclable wine cans using wind and geothermal energy to reduce their carbon footprint.
The Uncommon is dispelling any preconceptions that canned wine means lower quality with their recent medal scoop at the IWSC (International Wine and Spirit Competition) alongside some of the finest bottled sparkling wines in the world.
There are four locals in their ranks; Gerald, a sparkling English white wine, Eleanor, a sparkling English rosé, Alfie, a botanically infused white wine spritzer, and Peggy, a botanically infused rosé wine spritzer.
Each spritzer is made using their sparkling wines blended with spring water and carefully selected pure botanical extracts that celebrate the notes of the wines.
All four are light, deliciously dry and filled with English flavours that are curiously familiar and yet undeniably surprising. Created with little moments of celebration in mind, they are quick to chill, light to carry, hard to break, easy to open, and endlessly recyclable, ready to burst into life whenever and wherever you are.
In addition to their sustainable production, The Uncommon are invested in local conservation, working in partnership with The Bee Friendly Trust.
Biodiversity in the vineyard leads to healthier soils, healthier vines and better wines, so the decline in UK pollinators is close to their heart. 2% of each can sold goes directly into their projects with the Bee Friendly Trust. They also plant wildflowers amongst their vines and install beehives on their vineyards to help support the bee population.
So welcome to The Uncommon. It’s more than time you get properly acquainted.
