Over the past 10 years we have worked hard to save the Madeleine Angeveine vines. They were the remaining vines planted by Tony Holmes back in 1974. However, due to lack of care over a period of 20 years prior to 2007 it has been an uphill struggle.
Some years we have had an amazing crop but last year it was very obvious that they were tired and prone to disease. It was with a certain amount of regret that November 2016 saw us grubbing them up and preparing the ground for new planting in May 2017.
We have realised that Pinot Noir grapes grow well at Wraxall Vineyard and the new plantings will supplement our award winning Pinot Noir Rose still wine and our Somerset Sparkling Wine.
