Discover the wonderful world of biodynamic wine with the owner Robin Snowdon:
We are thrilled to announce our visit to a very special biodynamic vineyard set in the stunning Chew Magna Valley. This is a unique opportunity to learn about biodynamic viticulture ( and get some tips on growing your own vines! ) the latest research on bio-terroir. Bring a packed lunch and drinks and enjoy a picnic in the vineyard or in the barn depending on the weather beforehand.
“ Limeburn Hill Vineyard is an innovative, ecological vineyard near Chew Magna on the edge of Bristol. It is the only biodynamic vineyard in the south west of England, and one of only 7 in the UK. Perched on a sunny south-facing slope overlooking the Chew Valley the vineyard was hand-planted with 1800 vines in 2015 and a further 800 in 2019. Seven varieties of grapes are grown – three red and four white – from which a variety of natural wines are produced.
Our wines are certified as organic and biodynamic and we make them ourselves entirely from our own grapes. We produce Pétillant Naturel wines (naturally sparkling white, rosé & red) as well as experiments in still Amber wines (skin-macerated whites). All of our wines are vegan.”
