Exton Park Vineyard
At Exton Park, we know that extraordinary flavour starts with our soil. Our vineyard is built, quite literally, from the ground up, on the distinctive chalky soil that sets our sixty acres of Hampshire apart. Our single vineyard has nine plots, carefully nurtured by Fred and his team, each planted at a different altitude and aspect, offering exceptional variation in our grapes.
We nourish and regenerate our vineyard using the most natural methods possible, through the planting of wildflowers, grasses and cover crops and meticulous hand-pruning of our 120,000 vines. Come harvest time, only the ripest fruit is hand-selected and swiftly transported to our purpose-built winery at the top of vineyard.
The grapes are picked and pressed plot by plot, for superior distinctive flavour.
The fresh juice is then fermented for the first time, creating still wines which we add to our reserve library. The wines are now ready to be transformed through the skill and experience of our head winemaker, Corinne Seely.
