Welcome to Portesham Vineyard
An artisan vineyard established in 2004 on the gentle south facing slopes of the Dorset Downs benefitting from high light levels found only on coastal vineyard sites, the Jurassic Coast being only 2 1/2 miles away.
Terroir: A Kimmeridgian clay loam with a limestone substrate.
Our Ethos: To produce wine from vines that have been nurtured in balance with the countryside to create a fresh, light, distinctive wine full of echoes of an english summer.
Ecology: A haven for wildlife. Ancient hedgerows support a diverse bird population from Little Owls to the many goldfinches that nest amongst the vines.
