We named our first white wine ‘Barley Hill’ after the crop that was once grown on the hillside where our vineyard now sits. Once upon a time our farm produce a range of cereal crops, mainly used to feed the livestock on the farm.
Poppy Hill Rosé is our still rosé wine made from the Rondo grape variety. Described as medium dry, a smooth but quite full flavoured wine. Awarded a bronze award at the 'MVA 2017 Annual Wine Challenge' in the Medium Whites Class 2 Category and Silver in the same class in 2018.
Our vineyard is situated on the chalky hills of the Yorkshire Wolds and poppies would naturally grow on the land if left untreated. Although a weed, their striking red flowers would bring a touch of colour to the hillsides and this is the reason we decided to name our first rosé wine ‘Poppy Hill.’
Our Chalk Hill White is a blend of three grape varieties, Seyval Blanc, Phoenix and Madaline Angevine. Described as a dry, pleasant, fruity wine (typical of English) with a lasting aftertaste of apple and plum. Awarded a bronze award at the 'MVA 2018 Annual Wine Challenge' in the Dry Whites Class.
We named this wine ‘Chalk Hill’ after the land type on which the majority of our farm land resides. These are the steep hillsides along the wolds way. These hills with a chalky soil type have provided the perfect terroir for grape growing!

Three Cocked Hat is our first ever red wine made from the Rondo grape variety. Described as light in body but full of fruity flavour, Three Cocked Hat is 11.5% in alcohol level.
This wine gets its name from the shape of the field in which our vineyard now sits. The woodland along the bottom and to its peak have created three points, making its shape resemble a ‘Three Cocked Hat.’ It’s name goes back from before we owned the farm in the 1940’s and will continue far in the future!
James’ View is made entirely from our Phoenix grape. This wine is crisp and fresh.
The views from our vines are somewhat special, being at the top of the Yorkshire Wold hillsides you can literally see for miles. There were times we would forget to appreciate them, but now the endless hours of pruning and maintenance of the vines allows us to take them in on a daily basis.
