THE VINEYARD

A fantastic day out in the Shropshire countryside, the Vineyard is situated alongside the ancient Roman City of Uriconium (Wroxeter), which is located between the hill of Wrekin and the town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire. It nestles in a sandy sheltered plateau near the River Severn and is approximately 180 feet above sea level.

THE VINES

The vines and varieties and the root stocks were chosen for their vigour and suitability of the site and bearing in mind the variety of the vine to be grafted onto it. They were planted in row 8 feet apart and at spaces of 6 feet, and were allowed to grow to a height of 7 feet.
The plantation was North to South so that the morning sun caught the one side and the evening sun the other. Thus having maximum sunshine on the rows.
