Alison's tour was informative and very interesting. Lovely wines and interesting to have that bit of understanding when tasting. The vineyard is set in beautiful surroundings and we were blessed with fantastic weather. We had a really lovely day.

Lovely family boutique vineyard. Always loved the Bachus but the Blanc de Blancs sparkling is a really lovely wine and this vineyard is surely going to become well known.

I totally agree with your other review, this by far the best English wine I have tasted. It's a hidden gem with wine across the range of most excellent quality, flavour and body. Both complex and delicate but most of all exceptionally drinkable and enjoyable....More
