The vineyard is south facing, covering about two acres and containing about 2,300 vines.

We grow three grape varieties. Two of them, Bacchus and Ortega, are developed in Germany for a cool climate, and are partly of Riesling stock. The third, planted more recently, is Pinot Gris, a French grape.

We usually harvest the Ortega in late September and the Bacchus and Pinot Gris in October.

Ripening in mid October lends a pale, lemon gold hue to the wine.

The nose shows elderflower, nettle, lime flower and a hint of rose petal too. These aromas flow onto the palate to be joined with grapefruit and lemon skin notes, and just a hint of melon and nectarine fruit too. Finishes clean, crisp and dry.

English Pinot Gris sparkling

Pinot Gris


This grape produces dark blue grapes when ripened at the end of October giving the wine a slight blush appearance. By allowing the natural fermentation to extend to 30 months, the Pinot grape makes a very fine sparkling wine having a fruity aroma and spicy flavour. Crisp and dry.

English sparkling wines are becoming world wide award winners.

Ortega grapes ripen from the beginning of September – quite early for white grapes and therefore excellent in our rather damp Autumn climate.

It develops well in the bottle and produces wine of outstanding quality with a fine aroma reminiscent of peaches.

Not quite as dry as Bacchus, but not as sweet as Pinot.
