Portesham Vineyard

An artisan vineyard established in 2004 on the gentle south facing slopes of the Dorset Downs benefitting from high light levels, the Jurassic Coast being only two and a half miles away.

 
 

 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.

 

The Terroir

A Kimmeridgian clay loam with a limestone substrate . Abbotsbury Sub Tropical gardens share the same coastal strip as the vineyard, a unique microclimate.
