Artisan wines hand-crafted in Cornwall

Vines are very sensitive to the microclimate of the vineyard and to the soil conditions.  Everywhere in the UK, we know that the vines that do best are those that do well in the shorter and cooler northern European summers rather than long hot Mediterranean climate.  In Cornwall in particular, there are two extra factors:  the vines must not mind the damp conditions that “west coast weather” sometimes brings, and they have to be able to tolerate our relatively acid soil.

Our soil here is surprisingly similar to the Alsace region on the France / German border, so it was there that we looked for inspiration. It takes about 5 years for new vines to begin to produce fruit, and they then mature over the next 50 or so years, so it’s a long-term decision and really important to get it right.  After extensive research we decided on these varieties for our first planting:

We sell wine direct from the vineyard and also supply local restaurants, hotels and shops.

Wine is for sale at £11.50 per bottle with discounts for purchases of 12+ bottles and for trade.

Free local delivery to PL13 and PL14 postcode areas for 6+ bottles.  We can mail single bottles further afield – please check with us for postage rates.

Watch this space for news of our 2018 wines including a new rosé which we will be bottling shortly.  Thanks to Jo Hoskin for our lovely label designs and to FastLabels (www.fastlabels.co.uk) for printing great quality labels at an equally great price.
