We planted our vines in 2012 having analysed several different sites on the estate. The vineyard is south facing, at 50-85 meters altitude, has good protection from wind and frost, and has great mineral balance. The soil is a mixture of greensand and clay over a bedrock of sandstone.
We produce low quantities of first class sparkling wines in an artisan way. The vineyard has 14,000 vines of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier which is small enough that we can look after every plant carefully throughout the season. We believe canopy management is the best tool we have for getting the best fruit, which is very labour intensive.
