JENKYN PLACE VINEYARD

English Sparkling wine with a sense of place

About the winery
Jenkyn Place was historically a hop farm, growing some of the most highly prized hops in the whole of Britain. These same chalky Hampshire soils are now home to our much-loved grapes, which make some of the most exciting sparkling wines in Britain

History & Geography
When Simon Bladon bought Jenkyn Place in 1997, winemaking hadn’t even crossed his mind. The property entrepreneur and Rebecca, his wife, chose our Hampshire estate as the beautiful setting in which they wanted to raise their family. But when Simon attended a furniture auction in 2003 and was handed a glass of English sparkling wine for the first time, his outlook changed. He may not have bought any furniture at the auction, but instead he headed straight home and began laying plans to plant vines in the old hop fields next to his house. Jenkyn Place is now a family affair, with Camilla – Simon and Rebecca’s daughter – managing the business. “Returning home to the heart of Hampshire is a dream come true,” smiles Camilla. “With the launch of our 2013 vintage, I’ve redesigned our packaging to give our wine the quality and contemporary look that it deserves.”
