Now the Rich Brothers have revealed details of their garden for this year’s show.
Designing for joint sponsors Cloudy Bay wine and Bord na Móna UK’s peat-free growing media and soil improver brand, Vital Earth, Harry and David Rich have created a design aimed at prompting the desire for a nice glass of wine.
The garden, officially called The Cloudy Bay Garden in association with Vital Earth, uses growing and landscaping materials from Vital Earth with a planting scheme inspired by the reds and whites of Cloudy Bay’s signature wines, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.
Fresh and clean tones of Sauvignon Blanc are represented with white and green planting, including the field maple and Pinot Noir’s rich tones in shades of red, purple and plum, including a blooming hawthorn.
Pollinating plant species such as digitalis, verbascum, cenolophium, denudatum, Astrantia major, Filipendula ulmaria are key to the theme.
David Rich said: "The garden will convey ‘how things simply fit together’ through the structure and architecture of the wine, as well as the Marlborough terroir where micro-climates and diverse soil types deliver complexity of flavour and aroma."
His brother Harry said it was a privilege to be working with the two brands.
Cloudy Bay brand manager Maria Ines Pina, said: "Coming from the heart of the Brecon Beacons, the Rich Brothers truly understand nature, how people connect to it and the authentic simplicity of Cloudy Bay. The garden will embrace our approach to winemaking."
Bord na Móna’s head of consumer Charles Farmer said: "The environmentally-friendly materials and sympathetic planting encompass the essence of our approach to the garden and represent quality and authenticity naturally afforded by the climate and the soil. The combination with Cloudy Bay brings home the idea of natural resources, harnessed with integrity, responsibility and vibrancy."
