Broccoli-Flavoured Wine Is Here and This Might Be the First Time We’ve Said ‘No Thanks’ to a Cheeky Chardy
In what can only come as shocking news to many, it has been announced that a broccoli company in the UK has successfully convinced a nearby winery to join forces to produce the world’s first broccoli-infused wine, a “succulent chardonnay”.
The broccoli aficionados over at Tenderstem are proud of their brand of broccolini and thought there should be no reason why we can’t all consume the leafy goodness by the way of a tasty alcoholic tipple. They have partnered with Lyme Bay Winery to create the world’s very first broccoli-infused wine, much to the bemusement of many.
“Dubbed Tendernay, this suitably tender, sweet and succulent drink is the perfect infusion of Chardonnay married with the distinctive notes of our delicious stems,” the company declared confidently on their website.

The limited-edition vino features hundreds of broccolini stalks, which have been expertly infused with the award-winning grapes, and will be available for free for those lucky local punters keen on trying anything at least once.
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”.
There is no word on whether the wine will be available here in Australia, but we can only hope I guess.
