The vineyards are situated 1.2 miles from the lovely Wealden village of Biddenden, with its High Street flanked by half timbered houses once used for the weaving of cloth, and its 13th century grey stone church.
The vineyards were established by the Barnes family in 1969. Starting with one acre the vineyards has grown to 22 acres with nine varieties of grapes grown. Set on a gentle south facing slope in a shallow sheltered valley, ideal conditions for vines. Predominantly German varieties are grown including Ortega, Huxelrebe, and Reichensteiner.
Together with Pinot Noir, Gamay and Dornfelder the vineyards are able to produce White, Red, Rosé and Sparkling Wines. Harvest of the grapes takes place late September, visitors can see the presses in operation in the winery. Bottling of the wines commences early in the following year.
Great effort is made to ensure that the Estate wines produced are of the highest quality, which is reflected by the number of awards we receive. Alongside our wine making we also produce Strong Kentish Ciders and Farm Pressed Apple Juice, made from the juice of locally grown culinary and dessert apples.
Visitors are welcome to stroll around the 22 acres Kentntish Countryside. See the presses and bottling line in the Winery then visit our Tasting Room to sample our wines, ciders and apple juice.
