Planted in 1972, formerly the most northerly vineyard in the world. Located in a three sided walled garden that has a radiating effect on the vines and raises average temperatures by approximately 1 deg C. The majority of the vines are pruned to guyot single and double depending on the strength of growth of the individual vine.The layout of the vineyard is slightly northerly to suit the layout of the land.The vineyard is tended to entirely by hand.
The English Wine Project was founded in 2011 by Kieron Atkinson, who left the British Army after nine years’ active service to start a new career in English wine; the English Wine Project supports and champions English and Welsh wine to help improve the quality of its production across the U.K
Kieron completed the only UK wine production course and became Technical Advisor for the UK branch of the Rothschilds. By June 2011 Kieron had taken over the historic vineyard at Renishaw Hall in north Derbyshire, where he looks after the site and produces multiple award-winning wines.
