Stopham Vineyard Pinot Gris

Rich and tropical with a hint of spice.

Set at the edge of the picturesque Sussex hamlet of the same name, Stopham Vineyard has one of the finest sites in the south of England. The stony-sand soils and south-facing elevation (affording a dramatic view of The South Downs) are perfect for quality winemaking. Simon Woodhead, a Formula One technician turned winemaker, has thrown the dice boldly on this project, placing all his bets on the (hitherto-unknown in England) Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris varieties; so far with impressive results.
