Pip's Passion


Since arriving in England in 1972 Pip had always wanted to plant a vineyard. Having grown up in Cape Town, the site of mountains and rows of vines had become a familiar one. She dreamed of seeing this in her new home of Sussex.

In true English fashion Harry thought it best to consider the options which they did for 34 years. During this time Pip was able to work on her other great passion, family. Harry and Pip have 6 children and 9 grand-children.

The vineyard was planted in 2006 and Pip is as passionate about it now as she ever was. Her great dream of gathering people around a table in a vineyard, with family and friends, became a reality during the harvest of 2008 and she continues to dream and leads us on.
