Guests and racegoers at the Investec Derby Festival, taking place on 6th &7th June, will be raising a glass of English wine as the racecourse serves a selection of locally sourced wines for the first time.

Guests in the Jockey Club Suite will be able to enjoy a sample of all four wines and the Silent Pool Rosé will be available to the public in Owners and Trainers, the Mezzanine Champagne Bar and the new Tree Bar in the Grandstand.

The wines to be served are:

Albury Organic Vineyard Silent Pool Rosé 2013
Litmus White Pinot 2011
Rathbone Rosé Réserve 2010
Gusborne Pinot Noir 2011

Simon Durrant, General Manager of Epsom Downs Racecourse said, “During the two day Investec Derby Festival we try and source as much produce from local farms and we are delighted to be working with local vineyards and wine producers for the first time and hope to extend our partnership with them to other hospitality outlets in 2015.”
