The Estate contains a 30 acre vineyard overlooking the Itchen Valley between the villages of Itchen Stoke and Itchen Abbas. This was planted in 2011 with chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier grape varieties – the same varieties which are used to produce champagne in France. Currently this enterprise focuses on supplying grapes to the rapidly growing UK sparkling wine industry. In due course the partners of the business intend to develop their own sparkling wine brand.
One of Hampshire’s finest wedding and events venues, located 15 minutes east of Winchester and 60 minutes south of London, is set in an idyllic and historical setting on the banks of the Candover Brook.
At the historic core of the Estate is Grange Park, a 600 acre landscaped park and “The Grange”, an important Grade I listed neo-classical country house. The house is no longer occupied but provides an ideal venue for wedding receptions, parties and events, both within the house and outside in the gardens.
