Tenderstem has launched the UK’s first-ever broccoli-infused wine that will add a touch of the bizarre to your summer – and bottles are set to hit shelves this weekend
We’d guess you probably haven’t, but if the idea has piqued your interest now that we’ve said it, you might want to check out the latest product to be launched by Tenderstem.
The company – which is renowned for producing the tender alternative to regular broccoli – have partnered with Lyme Bay Winery to create the UK’s very first Tenderstem wine-based tipple, which mixes Chardonnay with the distinctive notes of Tenderstem broccoli.
The product, which has been named Tendernay, is set to hit shelves this weekend in anticipation of English Wine Week from June 18th to 26th, and was launched to try and entice more Brits to start eating their veggies.

The limited-edition tipple features hundreds of Tenderstem stalks, which have been expertly infused with the award-winning grapes, and will be available for free for those looking to wine and dine their tastebuds.
David Samuels, a spokesman at Tenderstem comments: “Tenderstem broccoli is a British suppertime favourite, and we continue to pride ourselves on its nutty, succulent flavour.
“So, what better way to use its iconic notes and flavours and launch our very own Tenderstem tipple? With the iconic English Wine Week upcoming, it felt like the right time to celebrate the nation’s trendiest vegetable, alongside wines created from our very own soil.”
Each bottle of Tendernay is made by extracting the sweet and nutty flavours of Tenderstem and mixing them with the 2019 Chardonnay from Lyme Bay Winery – and the veggie company claims the drink can “be paired with almost anything”.
