Brightwell Vineyard

Brightwell Vineyard – exploring the potential of English wine

Brightwell Vineyard was first planted in the late 1980’s and acquired by its present owners in 2000. It covers 16 acres and grows 8 varieties of grape including Bacchus, Chardonnay, Huxelrebe, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir. The wines produced – white, rosé, red and sparkling – are made in the on-site winery employing natural, minimum intervention methods. With our winemaker carefully guiding every process this allows the subtle, distinctive flavours of the different grape varieties to shine through.

Brightwell is continuing to explore the potential of English wine, and thus produces a wide range of styles; being particularly noted for the quality of its red wines, and its outstanding English Brandy.

The wines are sold from the vineyard’s on site shop and in many independent wine shops, delicatessens, farm shops and local Waitrose and Midcounties Co-op stores, as well as local restaurants and pubs. It is also exported to Switzerland, the Netherlands, Japan and Singapore.
