Our single vineyard sits on an ancient Thames gravel terrace, where water flowed about 450,000 years ago. For thousands of years the Thames cut down into the gravels and chalk, and left a terrace with steep slopes with large deposits of flint gravel, mixed into thick orange clay lying on top of the chalk.
This is classic ‘Thames Terroir’ and exists all around the valley at various heights above sea level. Being quite central and away from the coast we experience high summer day temperatures with cooler nights that preserve our precious acidity. All in all I feel very lucky to have found this site, but our job now is to show the world what it can produce.
