Hattingley Valley Wines

Unapologetically British - ironically, there is a certain 'je ne sais quoi' to our award-winning wines.

History & Geography

Simon was entranced when he heard a radio programme in 2000, on the rapidly developing English wine scene. After much thought and analysis in May 2008 his Hattingley adventure began. He had already commissioned a survey of flora and fauna on his farm in Hampshire, which lead to the discovery that the Silverwashed Fritillary Butterfly, common in Europe but rare in Britain, was a summer resident. The delicate eco-system in this part of Hampshire was enhanced by his planting of around seven miles of hedgerow under a countryside stewardship scheme. The presence of such an iconic butterfly meant that the Silverwashed Fritillary butterfly seemed a natural choice to weave into Hattingley’s brand identity. With family encouragement, he bravely decided to turn over 25 acres of chalky, south sloping fields to vineyards planting Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. In 2010 the eco-friendly state-of-the-art winery was completed in time for Hattingley's first harvest.
