We are a small-scale low-intervention vineyard on our fourth-generation sheep farm. Our name is lifted from a distinctive outcrop of exposed late Silurian rock on our farm called Whinyard Rocks - a Site of Special Scientific Interest located on Bache Hill in the Radnor Forest - which overlooks the vineyard.
In 2017 we planted 800 vines by hand with friends and another 800 in spring 2021. We chose three white varieties - solaris, phoenix and ortega - and two red - rondo and regent - for their flavour profiles and plucky ability to tolerate the challenging environment of our valley's altitude and cool Welsh climate.
Our grapes ferment on indigenous yeasts. We adopt a low-intervention approach with no added sulphur, fining or filtering to allow for a truer expression of our grapes and to make wines that reflect the Welsh hillside they're grown on.
Our Col Fondo and Pet Nat wines are due to be released in Summer 2022.
