Phew, the grapes are in, double the usual quantity, earlier and beautifully clean thanks to the warm and sunny summer. Now transferred to our expert winemakers to start the fermentation process which will take about two and a half years to complete, using the traditional method to create sparkling wine. Also in progress is a rose which will be ready next summer; the juice is tantalizingly sweet already.

Delighted to have been awarded a silver medal for the 2014 Hendred Brut at the Vineyards Association wine competition. A pleasure to taste many of the other wonderful English wines available at the event.

If you haven't yet sampled English sparkling wine, don't waste any more time, come over for a taster and see what you're missing!

We will be opening for tastings and sales on Sunday 17th June (in addition to 16th) to coincide with the Open Gardens event in East Hendred on 17th June. The vineyard is not part of the Open Gardens event, but the vines are visible en route to the shop.
