how wine is made

From Grapes To Glass - How Is Wine Made?

The art of winemaking has been around for thousands of years. It’s a natural process which requires very little intervention from humans, but each winemaker will guide the process through various techniques. Generally, there are 5 basic elements to creating wine: harvesting, crushing and pressing, fermentation, clarification, and finally, ageing and bottling. Winemakers will follow these five steps but often add in their own variations along the way to help create their own unique wine.

A Beginners Guide To Ales

Summer is fast approaching, which means there is no better time than now to perfecting your beer palette. But what do we even mean by that and more importantly where do you even begin? Well, when it comes to trying out new beers, often the easiest way to start is by looking at your current favourite and from there picking out some subtleties of the flavour. Looking at the colour of the beer can be a great general indicator of the flavour, the brewing process and also the history behind it too. 

6 Beer Styles Which All Savvy Beer Drinkers Need To Know

The list of recognised beer categories seems to be growing every day. If the more obscure classics such as salty-sour goses and herbal fruits weren’t enough to bewilder beer newcomers, newly invented styles including India pale lagers and Black IPAs only continue to add to the confusion. However, if you go to the bar and just say the words “All I want is a beer” when looking at an overcrowded menu at your local pub, hopefully learning about these six styles ensure you never freeze up in terror when placing your next beer order.

What is the beer making process?

From Barley To Bottle - How Is Beer Made?

The beer making process has been around for a very long while, and although many of the techniques have changed over the course of time, the basic process has remained pretty much the same. We take you through the brewing process on a commercial level, however, homebrewers will perform the exact same steps as in a commercial brewery but just on a much smaller scale and using easily attainable equipment.

Our Story

Redh is the brainchild of two Sussex born guys; Richard Edwards and Douglas Howard.  Great friends from school who have been known to enjoy an occasional drink or two! 

Following an impromptu visit to a small local brewery, they questioned why they had not heard of the quality beer even though it was on their door step?  The big lightbulb moment followed shortly after!  “Why don’t we create a business that can connect local people with local produce?”  They found that many smaller producers struggle to find the time and the resources to promote their craft goods.  That is where Redh will come to the rescue.  Providing a bar to discover, taste and sell predominantly English quality drinks and morsels, plus a website to reach folk further afield.

The beautiful Edwardian Post Office building in Haslemere (Richard and Douglas’ local town) will now become the hub of Redh.  Providing space for a bar/cafe, function area, shop - and as an added bonus the Post Office counter too! The Redh team welcome you to our website, or visit and drink with us in our Haslemere watering hole (no problems if you just buy a stamp!).
