Since purchasing Far Acre land in 2003, we have built up a thriving vineyard, winery, campsite and family home. Our Pinot Noir, Bacchus and Chardonnay vines were planted in 2010 and we have already produced 'Decanter' and 'Independent English Wine' Awards, focusing on excellent Quality English Sparkling Wines (traditional Champagne method). We only produce wine from our grapes, and our small on-site winery allows us to unlock our creativity.
Camping/glamping next to our vineyard, as well as tours and tastings, can be arranged.
We are still providing delicious Free Range eggs.Markets: * KFMA Wholesale hub, West Malling, Penshurst, Aylesford, Reuthe's Sevenoaks
We're not trying to emulate anyone or anything. We simply want to make the finest spirits possible that truly reflect the flavours of the woods, orchards, fields and hedgerows that surround our Shipbourne distillery.
We're a true micro-distillery on a mission to develop breath-taking spirits the slow way. We're honest about what we do and how we do it and we aim to be a positive influence on our community. We're called Greensand Ridge after the hills that surround the Weald, from where we source our flavours.
Sanden vineyard is located on a south east facing slope on sandy soil. It was originally planted in 1987 and in 2004 was partly replanted with Seyval and Pinot Noir grapes giving the wine a distinctive clean fresh taste and a nose with hints of vanilla and apple. Sanden matures on the lees for a number of years to enhance the flavour and the fine bubbles are the natural product of secondary fermentation in the traditional method. The wine is a delight to drink and makes any occasion special.Markets: Tunbridge Wells Independent, Penshurst, Shipbourne, Hildenborough
