Based in Dorking, Surrey, Litmus Wines was established in 2008 and is owned and operated by John Worontschak, Mike Florence and Matthieu Elzinga. Winemaker John has been making English wine since 1988 and in 2010, decided to create the first Litmus wine, Element 20.
John Worontschak is one of the world’s leading wine business consultants. Having worked in almost every wine-producing country in the world, he brings a wealth of winemaking talent to the Litmus business. Litmus is produced from a number of sites in Essex, Surrey and Sussex working closely with the vineyard owners to achieve premium ripe fruit that requires little or more often no winemaking intervention. The use of older barriques and extended lees contact are a hallmark of Litmus wines.
