The Vineyard

The Vineyard

The Wiston Estate Vineyard is situated on the south facing chalk slopes of the South Downs.

We planted in 2006 with the traditional varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and it spreads across 16 acres. It is sited on a periglacial dry river valley on the Upper Cretaceous Chalk, which closely resembles the physical and chemical composition of the world renowned Côte de Blancs  in Champagne.

There are no herbicides sprayed on the soil, which enables the microbiological activity to thrive and we use a “boisselet” (mechanical hoe) to keep the weeds under control.

To ensure pre-Christmas delivery, please order before Midnight on Monday 17th December.
Please note that the Winery will be closed from Friday 21st December, re-opening on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
We will not be able to dispatch any orders placed during this period, but will ensure that they are sent out on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
