Looking back into the history of our brand brought us unexpectedly all the way to the 13th century and the very origins of the Haselgrove name itself. ‘Haselgrove’ means ‘from near a grove of hazel trees’, symbolizing a connection with the land from the very beginning. The Celts believed the trees that grew around them had special powers. The Hazel tree is arguably the quintessential Celtic tree due to its legendary position at the heart of the otherworld. The tree belongs to the Celtic calendar signifying: Knowledge, Honesty, Purity and Creativity. It is these four principles that Haselgrove intend to bring to each and every wine we create.
The names of each of the wines in our Origin and Legend Series are linked to our Celtic namesake roots. These wines contain the very best parcels of fruit harvested each vintage, with our flagship, The Legend Series released only from outstanding vintages and blended from our finest parcels.
