Pinot Noir

We have two different varieties of Pinot Noir.

We have two Champagne varieties which are typically used to make white or rosé, still or sparkling wine.  On a really good year the skins are ripe enough to make a Pinot Noir red wine.

We have one Burgundy variety used for making still red wine.

Divico Vines - Swiss Variety producing red wine


We are really excited about this revolutionary new vine from Switzerland. It was created to be disease resistant, it is a heavy cropper and produces full bodied red wine in a cold climate such as Switzerland and the UK.  It has a deep colour and produces a rich warm wine with notes of blackcurrant.

Cabernet Noir

Also known as Caberet Noir, this is a disease resistant variety from Switzerland developed as cross with Cabernet Sauvignon which produces a medium bodied wine with excellent acidity, tannins and aromas. Our first harvest of this variety will be in Autumn 2023


This is our main grape vine for still Estate White and future Blanc de Blanc sparkling white wines. We prefer Chardonnay unoaked as it gives a far more fruity, light and refreshing wine.

Pinot Meunier

This variety is most frequently used in making classic sparkling wine where it is blended with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Pinot Gris

This vine is a blush, where the skins are neither red or green, and is used to make white or rose wine. 
We hope to make an Estate Pinot Gris from this year’s harvest in October 2023.
