Our Sussex vineyards span the width of this beautiful County in the South of England. In these picture-perfect locations, we are very fortunate to have a variety of soil types giving us a multitude of stylistic elements to play with when blending our award-winning sparkling English wines.
Our oldest vines were planted in 2006 and we tend over 200,000 vines annually. To manage our estates we have a full-time vineyard team, who use their wealth of experience to ensure we produce the best possible fruit for our wines. These guys are the unsung heroes behind our Roebuck Estates award-winning fizz!
Upperton is located close to the village of Tillington to the West of Petworth in Sussex and has the most magnificent southerly views towards the South Downs.
Upperton is our crown jewel and is home to our oldest vines, planted back in 2006. Classic Champagne varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, lead the way here, and the sandy soils on which they thrive give elegance and finesse to our wines.
Roman Villa Vineyard
Our Roman Villa vineyard is a beautiful site nestled in blissfully serene valley to the South East of Petworth. Here, we have just under 15 acres of vines planted in 2007 with Pinot Noir on a mixture of Burgundian and Champagne clones.
South facing, the gentle slopes are protected by the South Downs, which moderate the prevailing south-westerly winds, and the loam/clay rich soils give great structure and depth to our wines.
Little Brockhurst Farm Vineyard
Nestled in the foothills of Black Down and sited just outside the picture postcard village of Lurgashall, Little Brockhurst Farm lies in a natural amphitheatre.
Planted in 2013 on a mixture of flint, clay and sandy soils, we have 17 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties which are showing huge promise and starting to produce fruit with amazing complexity.
Located just to the North of the West Sussex village of Slinfold, our vineyard at Waterlands occupies the most perfect south-facing slope.
Its aspect, gradient and the incredibly strong progress of the holy trinity of Champagne varietals have left us hugely excited to see what our first crop this year will bring.
