The Mountfield Winery is in Sussex and has been developed over the last 12 years. We released our 2016 Classic Cuvee and 2017 Rose a year ago and we released our 2015 Blanc de blancs in the autumn. These wines are available in the online shop.
We planted our vines in 2012 having analysed several different sites on the estate. The vineyard is south facing, at 50-85 meters altitude, has good protection from wind and frost, and has great mineral balance. The soil is a mixture of greensand and clay over a bedrock of sandstone.
We developed an old dairy unit to create the winery which is next to the vineyard. Being so close means we can protect the quality of the fruit during harvest as there is no delay from vine to press.
The tasting room is in the stables next to the house and is a great room to relax and drink wine in. It has an amazing timber interior as well as a modern kitchen and a wine store.
