Richard and Joy Morris, comprises two vineyard sites on the edge of Monmouth, South East Wales with some 30,000 vines planted on approximately 12 hectares (29.5 acres) and a state-of-the-art, modern winery. The business has evolved from the first plantings in 2006 and 2007 at Ancre Hill, which now extends to about 4 hectares of mature vines. Newton Court Farm was purchased in 2014, the same year as the new winery was built at Ancre Hill, where a further 8 ha of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay has been planted.

All the land was former grazing pasture – never used for agriculture and the soils are healthy and well nourished. Ancre Hill apply a holistic approach to everything in vineyard and winery and practise conscientious biodynamics.

A balance between delicateness and power with bright minerality, the aromas and flavours are of light lemon, ripe green apple, wet stone, and white flowers displaying hints of honeysuckle & discreet vanilla.
