Bride Valley Vineyard

"Stimulos Adde” or “spur on” is the Spurrier family motto and it applies to everything we do at Bride Valley Vineyard. Just twenty five acres on the most advantageously positioned southeast, south and southwest facing slopes in the bowl of our two hundred acre farm, are close-planted to 42,000 vines. The village of Litton Cheney lies on the Jurassic Coast of South Dorset, twenty four miles as the crow flies from Kimmeridge, which gave its name to Champagne’s chalk-based soils. Seven different clones of Chardonnay (55%), four of Pinot Noir (25%) and two of Pinot Meunier (20%) were meticulously selected at Burgundy’s Pépinières Guillaume to match each individual plot. In late October the grapes are hand-harvested and delivered to our neighbour Ian Edwards of the award-winning, impeccable winery Furleigh Estate. Here, after the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, the blending takes place in May for the second fermentation in bottle, the wines resting fifteen to twenty months on their lees. A light dosage after dégorgement retains the natural freshness and elegance of Bride Valley
