About Litmus Wines
Litmus Wines was a company established in the year 2008 by three friends, John Worontschak, Mike Florence and Mathieu Elzinga. The company is located in Dorking’s Denbies Wine Estate in the county of Surrey. All three of them had a lot of interest and passion for winemaking. Litmus Wines was founded to give wings to their dreams of running a successful wine business.
Litmus works with a lot of associate partners in various countries such as Australia, South Africa and Germany to create high-quality wines from excellent vines and terroirs. The Litmus label of wine is created by highly experienced winemaker, John Worontschak. Though he was making wine since 1988, he released his first wine for this label in the year 2010.
Today, the Litmus range has four types of wines such as:
Element 20 – made from a blend of 35% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Gris and 30% Pinot Blanc
White Pinot – made from 100% Pinot Noir that is carefully handled throughout the winemaking process
Orange – made from 100% Bacchus that are carefully selected and harvested by hand
Since it works with a lot of winegrowers, the Litmus Group selects some of the best vineyard sites located across Surrey and Essex. The group gives full freedom to the vineyard owners to grow premium fruits that help to create wines that are well-balanced.
