Dermot Sugrue’s bold next step in English winemaking

Dermot Sugrue

It’s lucky that Irish-born Dermot Sugrue thrives on stress. The past few years have been a whirlwind for the supremely talented, Sussex-based winemaker, who has 20 years of experience under his belt with a raft of well-known English winery names.

In that time he has left Wiston Estate, where he worked for 16 years, moved house, got married, had a baby, and then – with investment from Robin Hutson, owner of The Pig hotel group, and actor Hugh Bonneville – built a new winery for the wines he makes under his own Sugrue South Downs label, from several sites his team manage in East and West Sussex.
