minerva is more than just a lovingly crafted, one-of-a-kind british wine. every bottle is the result of the collective support of ‘aiga - our extended family.

right now we're in production with the very first vintage. each bottle of our hand crafted luxury sparkling wine is going through a secondary fermentation and ageing process. this traditional method of making sparkling wine is the most appreciated in terms of quality and the transformation from still to sparkling occurs entirely inside the bottle.

when the wine is ready later this year, it will have spent 9 months in the bottle, but this has been more than 10 years in the making.

Baths First Sparkling Wine

Minerva Sparkling Wine 2021

In The Beginning…

The Romans planted vines here in Bath dating back to the middle ages, there are still remnants in these fields of one of those vineyards.

Rainwater falling on the Carboniferous Limestone outcrop in the Mendip Hills descends to great depths in the Radstock Basin where it becomes geothermally heated, before rising beneath Bath and breaking through the aquiclude formed by the Mesozoic rocks.


This geology is certainly rare with it's geothermal underlay. Perhaps the Romans had access to ancient insight about this terroir and the characteristics expressed in vines grown here, to produce a unique and exquisite taste unlike anything in the world.
