Welcome to Wickham Vineyard Established in 1984 with a first planting of 6 acres, Wickham Vineyard has grown to become one of the most important vineyards in England. Now with 18 acres of vines on the 40 acre estate and producing red, white, rosĂŠ and sparkling wines, we have won a number of awards both nationally and internationally. Open to visitors all year round the best way to discover the vineyard is with our audio tour and our group guided tours.
The Vineyard We grow 10 different grape varieties which include Pinot Noir, Rondo, Triomphe and Dornfelder for the reds and Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Faber, Wurtzer, Schoenburger and Kerner for the whites. The trellis system we use for the vines is called Geneva Double Curtain and is perfect for cooler climate growing regions as it can increase the yield by up to 50%. Harvest commences around the beginning of October and bottling from March the following year.
