We are delighted to invite Members to visit a remarkable English vineyard whose cellar doors are rarely opened for the public, as part of our English Wine Week celebrations.
Members can expect a rare tour of the vineyards and state-of-the-art winery guided by owners Fiona and Stephen Duckett, before a six-wine tasting and paired lunch in their beautiful dining space overlooking the lovingly preened vineyards.
The level of meticulous care and investment both in the vineyard and the winemaking facilities is evident throughout the property, and our engaging hosts will shine a light on the unique projects which make the Oxford estate an English winery to watch.
Members will learn about how Hundred Hills became the first vineyard in England to use satellite data collection to monitor soil, nutrients and vine health. The initiative puts Hundred Hills at the forefront of a research project aimed at improving sustainable viticulture, monitoring disease in the vineyard and helping wineries worldwide make critical decisions to tackle climate change.
There will be ample time to grow familiar with the fascinating winemaking duo, stunning wines and your fellow Members, as we ease into a relaxed tasting and delicious lunch in the resplendent Hundred Hills tasting room, overlooking the vines which produce the wines in your glass.
We hope to see you there.
