About Kit’s Coty

With gently sloping lime-rich chalk soil and a unique micro-climate, we firmly believe the 95-acre Kit’s Coty site on the Kent North Downs offers the best terroir for growing grapes in England. (It’s no coincidence that Taittinger decided to plant vines on neighbouring land).

Our vision with the Kit’s Coty estate has always been to produce exceptional wines that push the boundaries of what can be achieved in this country. As such, we employ meticulous approaches in the vineyard and winery to produce the finest wines possible. Each wine released is a single varietal expression which we hope will rival the world’s best.
