About the vineyard
In 2009 the owners of a small private estate at Hencote planted a hobby vineyard comprising 160 vines.

Within a few years this was producing surprisingly buoyant harvests of good quality grapes. Despite a lack of encouragement and genuine skepticism from Viticulturists, a subsequent and exhaustive study revealed conducive growing conditions for establishing a viable vineyard. The owners passionately believed that the estate could be developed to support both a vineyard and also oeno-tourism.


This vision has inspired the development of the estate today. By 2015 a new vineyard of 24,000 vines had been planted. Earlier this year the winery building was completed and a new restaurant and wine and cocktail bar opened. A new glamping village was also opened and a brand new road linking the estate to main vehicular routes was established.
