Their Philosophy

_

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.
