Wine Is Life:
Charlie Herring English Wine

The once abandoned 19th century kitchen garden in Hampshire provides a fantastic environment for our Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc vines. The combination of gravel soils, Lymington’s maritime climate and the thermal properties of the walls offer a unique vine-growing opportunity from which we craft both still and sparkling wines.

Restoration of the ancient apple orchard is ongoing and with it cider production, along with a small amount of beer from wild hops that we discovered growing behind the winery.

Convinced that the true value of wine lies in its ability to reflect time and place, we manage our vineyard organically and follow natural winemaking practices in the cellar. This post-modern approach requires a higher level of understanding and a less interventionist approach than is often seen today but we believe it results in a more authentic wine.

Wine is Life.
