About the winery
Stopham Estate's 15 acre vineyard enjoys a favourable position at a low altitude within the South Downs National Park and was established in 2007 when Simon Woodhead , the vineyard owner and winemaker, planted 21,000 vines on south facing slopes on free draining sandy soil. The grape varieties planted are predominantly for the production of still, aromatic white wines (Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris & Bacchus) and varietals for sparkling include Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Sustainability and passion are at the heart of our winemaking. Our position within the South Downs National Park means that we are very respectful of our environment. We have to protect the natural ecosystem and ensure sustainable vineyard practice such as soil management, minimal spraying of pesticide and use our water and energy supply efficiently. The Stopham wines are hand crafted and have won many awards including the IEWA (Independent English Wine Awards) trophy for best English still wine for the 3rd year running.
