We are a boutique, family-run vineyard located right here in
Hawkinge and are passionate about producing unique and delicious English wines
with integrity. We grow six varieties of grape and are proud to make all our
wines using grapes grown here at Terlingham.
Our ethos is, “nothing added, nothing taken
away”. Three years ago we embarked on
the exciting journey of using exclusively natural farming techniques and
producing natural wines under the knowledgeable and enthusiastic guidance of
our winemaker. Our third year went exceptionally well, with a record yield, no
disease and absolutely minimal harm caused to our vineyard and surrounding
environment due to our natural farming methods.
A great deal of time, effort and love is poured into
the cultivation of our vines which in turn make the beautiful grapes that go
into our wines. We can pick and choose the exact grapes we harvest, when we
harvest them, how we press them and exactly when the optimum time is to bottle
our wine. Because of this, each harvest produces exciting and varied wines,
each with a unique character and its own story. This is a true luxury for us
and we believe it’s one of the reasons our wines are so special!
