The winemaking:

 

Grapes are handpicked in the cool morning. Grapes are crushed and punched down daily. Fermentation is 100% whole-bunch and runs at around 30 degrees for about ten days. The grapes then spend a further 20 days on skins for tannin integration. The wine ages for 11 months on gross lees in old 2000 litre French oak foudre. Before racking into stainless steel tanks to settle for three months. The three vineyards are blended and bottled without fining nor filtration. No SO2 is added during the winemaking process.


About Us

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.
