Organic – family owned – 20 acres – minimal intervention
Will Davenport has been making English wine for 20 years, gradually growing his operation from a handful of vineyards to a total of 20 hectares across the unique terroir of East Sussex.
Will’s principal objective is to produce wines that truly express the English terroir and climate, an aim best achieved in his opinion through an approach of minimal intervention and organic farming.
The decision to work organically also allows the team to reduce their impact on the environment, an issue that those at Davenport are extremely conscious of.
Their flagship white wine has been produced each vintage since 1993 and is very much similar in style to a New Zealand Sauvingon Blanc. Crisp, aromatic and fruit driven with grapefruit and hedgerow notes, it is a blend of 6 grape varieties – including Bacchus, Ortega, Faber and Huxelrebe – and is most certainly a wine that highlights the potential for premium wine production in the south of England.
