"Old vines, red west country soil, dry white wines that have been winning
international awards for 25 years."
Join us and Ned Awty from Oatley Vineyard for a fun & sociable evening of discovering & tasting some fantastic local wines, paired with west country cheeses & homemade sweets.
Grow the best grapes we can every year, with no herbicides, using good husbandry to minimise the need for fungicides
Make fully dry, delicious wines, only from our own grapes, that reflect the vines, the place and the year: terroir-driven wines;
To use minimum intervention winemaking and low levels of sulphur;
To submit all our wines to external quality analysis;
To use lower weight bottles to keep our carbon footprint low;
To use high quality traditional corks to help maintain the important mixed cork oak ecology in Portugal;
To sell mainly directly within the southwest of England to keep our "wine miles' low;
To maintain our old vines in good health for as long as we can, keeping our traditional aromatic white wine grape varieties;
To keep a cover of naturally regenerated sward to maintain soil health and capture carbon;
To promote biodiversity by letting our alleys come up to seed in May and June, letting our hedges grow and keeping a naturally
regenerating a wild area next to the vineyard
To stay small and make only wines that we like to drink, from vines tended mainly by our own hands.
