One of our Pinot Meunier vines
A healthy bunch of Pinot Noir!
Work in the winery has intensified as we are busy preparing all the equipment so that we are ready to receive the grapes. This has involved cleaning and calibrating all the tanks, servicing equipment and ordering winemaking products and equipment.
We've also started taking some public tours around the vineyard, winery and cellars on saturdays in the last month. The tours seem to be going down very well - particularly the tasting at the end, when we also tell guests all about the heritage of the Estate and its important place in the history of English wine production. Obviously it's still early days for us opening our doors to visitors, but the initial feedback has been really encouraging. So anyone out there who'd like to find out more about our vision for England's oldest commercial vineyard, please get in touch!
