Beautiful vineyard in Rutland producing stunning wines on Jurassic limestone soil.
Located on top of a narrow ridge between the rivers Welland and Chater, 70m above sea level and facing south we’ve got prime part of Rutland. Hard to think 160 million years ago this would have been England’s south coast! Single site vineyard planted in 2021.

Over 1400 people visited, sunflowers galore were cut and thanks to the amazing generosity of all the visitors we had raised £5,147.60! Zoe donated the funds in September and Rutland Sailaibilty are looking at purchasing a new rescue boat. We knew at this point we already had the best customers even before we’ve opened!
We raised over £5000 for Rutland Sailability
