Heron Farm’s vineyard covers approximately 3.5 acres of south-facing and gently sloping land, ideally positioned to capture the best of the warmth from the sunshine.
3 grape varieties are currently grown – Solaris, Seyval Blanc, and Pinot Noir – across approximately 3000 vines, producing between 1000 and 4000 bottles of still and sparkling wine per year (weather dependent!). These varieties were specifically chosen because of their high level of innate disease resistance, which allows us to use absolutely minimal amounts of herbicides and pesticide.
As we are a small vineyard, we do not have our own winery on site. Currently, our sparkling wines are produced by the reputed winery Haygrove Evolution in Herefordshire (http://www.haygrove-evolution.com/), and our still wines by the award winning winemaker Steve Brooksbank in Somerset. One reason these wineries were chosen was because they undertake small batch processing of grapes, meaning that our wines are produced exclusively from the grapes in our vineyard. As such each of our wines has a truly unique identity and taste reflecting both the characteristics of the vineyard (the terroir) and the climatic conditions during the grape growing season of each vintage year.
You can buy our wines on our website, direct from our premises (please just get in touch to arrange this), or in various local retail outlets including Greendale Farm Shop, Christopher Piper Wines, and Knights Farm Shop.
We normally run Vineyard Tours and Tastings regularly over the Summer. Please check back here, or follow our social media feeds, for updates on this. We are also happy to accommodate Private Tours at any time of year – please get in touch to find out more.BUY OUR WINE HERE
