Hattingley Valley was established by ex-solicitor Simon Robinson, who discovered that the soils on his farmland were ideal for grape growing and realised his dream by planting his first vines in 2008. Along with the classic varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, he added a nursery with another 3000 vines of different grape varieties and rootstocks in order to determine the best matches of grape variety for the site. The newly built winery is eco-friendly, being the first in the UK to use solar power and an innovative way of dealing with the winery’s effluent. The winery’s waste water flows downhill to where a Bio-Bubble aerobic digester is buried. It cleanses the waste water through the use of living bacteria and the resultant water is clean and potable. This forward thinking and experimental approach makes Hattingley Valley an exciting new English producer to watch.

Carefully selected blend of classic varieties, this wine was partially fermented in oak barrels and has been aged on lees after second fermentation in the bottle.

An elegant wine with finesse, lemon sherbet notes and a characteristic toasty flavour.
