The vineyard/the winemaking:
Vinho Verde is in the cool, verdant north west of Portugal, which has a strong influence from the Atlantic ocean. The Loureiro for this wine is grown in subregion Ponte de Lima. Soils are granitic and free draining, altitude is close to sea level. The winemaking is low intervention, he ferments in small stainless steel tanks using natural yeasts, aiming to make wines with balance that reflect his terroir. The wine is then kept on fine lees for five months in stainless steel tanks before bottling with light filtration.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
