We make white, rosé and sparkling wines using the latest winemaking technology to bring out the best from our estate grown grapes.

Stainless Steel Fermentation tanksWillmes Grape Press at Stopham

Still grape varieties are de-stemmed, crushed and macerated before being pressed to maximise fruit extraction.

All stainless steel fermentation tanks are installed with temperature regulation jackets, temperature sensors and carbon dioxide sensors.

Fermentation rates are controlled automatically so that the fermentations are slow and gentle.

This is done in a closed loop control system using carbon dioxide sensors, which measures the fermentation rate in real-time.

Bottling is done under inert gas, with bottles sealed under Stelvin Lux+ saran tin screwcaps.

Wines are scientifically analysed and monitored in our wine laboratory.
