Woodchurch Wine Vineyard
Susan's Hill Ashford TN26 3RE United Kingdom
Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Woodchurch in Kent, the vineyard at Woodchurch Wine Estate is spread over more than 12 acres of land. From the rolling hills, vistas stretch all the way down to the English Channel. And, with France in sight, there’s a taste of Champagne in the air, particularly with their award-winning wines on offer.
Masterminded by wine lovers, Graham and Donna Barbour, the Woodchurch Wine Estate has rapidly proved its worth. The couple bought the South-facing plot at auction in 2009 planting the first Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier clones in 2010. As with many producers, Graham was clear that site selection was critical and their meticulous preparation was immediately rewarded by their first harvest in 2012.Graham has always lived in Kent and, leaving a successful career in publishing, his ambition was to produce wine that was completely representative of the county – a wine that “tasted of Kent”. His wife Donna worked in the United States for some time and was initially keen for them to move the family and set up a vineyard over there, but ultimately decided against the idea.Graham and Donna tend to the vineyard themselves and are very modest about the two awards under their belt, putting it down to location – the perfect blend of geography and climate. Throughout your private wine tour and tasting, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about still and sparkling wine production – from where the grapes come from, to how they are caged and riddled by hand. You’ll then have the opportunity to taste a variety of Woodchurch wines, before choosing a bottle to take with you to drink at home.
