OUR BRAND VALUES*

Our Sixteen Ridges Vineyard wines are made at our own winery in Ledbury, Herefordshire. Simon Day our director grew up on an English vineyard and has gained experience growing grapes and making wines around the world and the UK. Our grapes are grown at two vineyards; one just north of Worcester and another right here in Ledbury. We grow predominantly Pinot Noir with which we make one of the best red wines in England, this grape also makes our fantastic fizz - regularly awarded by Decanter and IWSC. Our aspect and location are key to producing perfect grapes, both vineyards are south facing, well sheltered from harsh winds and have excellent drainage. With the finest quality grapes you can make the finest English wines - we let the fruit do the talking!

OUR COMMITMENTS*

Sustainability

Soil health and biodiversity is imperative to long lasting, naturally hardy vines producing the best quality grapes, as important as terroir. We make the most of natural predators and mulching to reduce disease.

Environment

We're a LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Farm which means we use natural pesticides, have wide field margins for wildlife and only spray when absolutely essential to keep the vines in good health.

Local Communities

We support the local charity Wellchild who make home life possible for seriously ill children, rather than hospital.

Packaging & Waste

At shows our tasting cups are always compostable - made from Vegware. Everywhere else we try to use recycled or recyclable materials.

Inspiring & Educating

Although we're not open yet for public tours we always ensure our stockists like Midcounties get to visit the vineyard and winery to gain a greater understanding on the wines that they sell so that they can inform their customers.

Energy Reduction

Having an English winery is the ultimate in low 'food' miles. Most of our customers are within 60 mile radius. Ferments happen at cool temperatures, no additional heat is required. Water is recycled whenever possible.

Nutritional Values

Our Pinot Noir is not as high in beneficial tannins as the Tannat grape but if you drink responsibly you can enjoy a little bit of English countryside.

Animal Welfare

Waste grape skins and stalks make a delicious treat for local pigs and cattle!
