Following national lockdown, more than 40% of Brits1 found that nature, wildlife, and visiting local green spaces have become even more important to their wellbeing since COVID-19 restrictions began. Stoneleigh wants to give Brits who live in busy cities the opportunity to connect with that hard-to-come-by outdoor space and to take a deep breath and get in touch with nature, in celebration of its launch in the UK.

Guests can choose one of four premium garden rentals on offer from the online booking service, invite up to six friends and get themselves to a city hideaway to enjoy a crisp glass of the new Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc alongside some delicious light nibbles.

From a peaceful and sunny garden in Brighton to an idyllic urban oasis in the lively city of Manchester, guests are invited to book their preferred 2-hour slot:

Brighton – 29th and 30th August; 4th and 5th September
Manchester – 28th and 30th August; 4th and 5th September
Muswell Hill (London) – 29th and 30th August; 4th and 5th September
Hackney (London) – 28th and 30th August; 4th and 5th September
The events are part of a wider Stoneleigh campaign, the National Plottery which is giving communities a chance to submit plots of land to be transformed into a space that people can enjoy. Guests simply need to book their preferred garden experience and enter details of the plot of land they would like to see regenerated, with 100 per cent of all ticket sales donated to Grow2Know. The non-for-profit that helps renovate gardens and plots of land throughout London.

Stoneleigh is proud to be on a sustainability journey as it believes that getting back to nature means giving back to nature. Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent sustainably sourced grapes with over 10,000 trees plants for its biodiversity projects and over 30 hectares dedicated to biodiversity projects and regenerative land.

Lucy Bearman, Wine Portfolio Director of Stoneleigh said: “Uniqueness is in the brand’s DNA, as Stoneleigh is the product of grapes ripened by sun-charged stones. It is our core brand belief that a sustainable partnership with nature is what allows us to create our unique style of wine so now we want to give back.

We want to invite nature and wine-loving Brits across the country to slow down, enjoy beautiful urban gardens and our wine with friends and family, while also nominating their favourite community garden spaces in need of regeneration in partnership with Grow2Know.”
