Ben grew up on a farm on the Lincolnshire Wolds, and his immersion in rural life from a young age has had a strong influence on his approach to wine… an interest which in turn was derived after visiting his first vineyard in Burgundy (one that is now certified biodynamic) aged 22. He knew immediately that he wanted to work with wine and immersed himself in various parts of the trade including winemaking and vineyard management, import and sales. His goal however was always to realise the original dream of owning and operating a small farm with a vineyard at its core. The farm he has found to start this project totals 70 acres, on which he intends to farm livestock and agro-forestry as well as the vines, of which five acres or so are going in to start with, with up to 30 acres possible in due course.

Rose gold with an ethereal shimmer. A highly aromatic nose with magnolia and elderflower notes. Good grip from the maceration and bright acidity which underpins a lasting finish.
