The producer/the viticulture:
Neil Prentice's(the winemaker) day job is raising Wagyu beef cattle, but in his spare time he makes a voluptuous pinot gris and artisan sparkling wines in the cool-climate Whitlands high plateau region of Victoria. He uses some biodynamic practices in the vineyard, although explains that it isn't for dogmatic reasons, but simply that he believes it produces better grapes and therefore better wine! In the winery he works in a low intervention 'natural' style with minimal additions.
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.
