The Vineyard Today

Ten years after re-establishing Wraxall Vineyard we are thrilled to have put it back on the map of great Somerset vineyards. Our work has been focused on bringing the soil and the vine canopies to their present level of quality production.

May 2017 saw us planting more Pinot Noir vines which supplemented our award winning still Rosé and our Somerset sparkling wine. We are told that it takes 100 days of sunshine during the growing season to make a good Pinot Noir red wine. That target is still elusive but an exciting prospect.

Our wine is made by award winning wine-maker Steve Brooksbank whose new winery is on the other side of Wraxall Hill.
