Contract Winemaking

Your Vision, Our Vinification

With extensive knowledge and experience in sustainable  contract winemaking we can be your guide from pre-harvest advice to the finished wine. We have the ability to create a bespoke product with your own grapes, or alternatively with grapes grown on our 25 acre vineyardWith over 65 stainless steel vats, ranging from 675 to 23,500 litre capacity, we have the versatility to process a volume to suit your requirements.

If you are contemplating a quality red, a sparkling white, or something more ‘alternative’ in terms of product, we are able to produce to your requirements. We would be delighted to help you develop a bespoke production service tailored to your taste.

It's never too early to choose your winemaking partners. Whether you are yet to plant a vineyard, planning the first harvest, or looking for a fresh start — as an expanding enterprise, we invite you to connect with us

People, Vats and Juice!

Green grapes
  • Initial consultation – come in and meet our Head Wine Maker. We are able to  produce  a bespoke wine with an individual production protocol if required.
  • After Harvest the grapes will be  destemmed (if required) and or crushed  on arrival.
  • The grapes will be pressed with one of our two pneumatic pressers – we have the capacity to press from 1-70 plus tonnes!
  • The juice will be analysed in our lab for acids and sugars.
  • Once testing is completed, the juice will be sent to  vat for fermentation, a process which takes approximately  a month, during which time the wine  is closely monitored and readings recorded.
  • On completion of the fermentation process, the wine will be  filtered,  using  a  number of different methods including RDV, cross flow, cartridge and  plate filtration.
  •  At this stage an invitation  will be sent to you, for you to come in and taste the   wine,  creating a wine to suit your taste.
  •  If you wish to make a sparkling wine, we use the traditional method, a   semi-automatic disgorging line and a gyro pallet for riddling.
  •  Your product will  be bottled, labelled (if required) and stored  in our fully   insulated premises for  maturation.
  •  Finally, your product will be dispatched and is ready to enjoy!

 We would love to hear from you. As a united team, we pride ourselves on our personable experience and passionately believe in creating a quality product for our customers.
