Busi-Jacobsohn is a family run wine estate located in the High Weald in East Sussex, with vines planted in 2015 and first wines coming soon.
Aspect and Locality
The High Weald is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which was first settled in the 14th century and is still known for its surviving medieval landscapes. The vines are on a south-west-facing slope giving views over scattered fields and farmsteads that make up a green sea of rolling hills and woods.
A Family with European Influences
The wine estate is headed by husband and wife team, Douglas and Susanna who together with their two sons, run the estate which was founded in 2015. The Jacobsohn family is originally from Sweden though their heritage is more broadly European, predominantly the Mediterranean. The name Busi derives from Susanna’s Italian roots named after a small village in the Piemonte, a region located in the north of Italy known for its wonderful wines.
It had been a long dream for both Douglas and Susanna to retire to a vineyard in Italy, however as they found themselves falling in love with the English countryside they decided that it seemed only natural to found a vineyard here as they discovered the conditions were perfect for the production of sparkling wine.
