The Vineyard Diaries

The harvest period is always a tricky one - especially checking the readings for acid levels (and so ripeness), along with the weather of course, and trying to gauge the right time to pick!

Welcombe Hills in the early morning light

Welcombe Hills was founded by Chris and Jane Gallimore, who left successful careers as international school teachers to follow their love of viticulture and establish the vineyard in 2001. An initial area of half an acre was planted with Pinot Noir together with Dornfelder and Bacchus. Vines take three years to establish themselves so, apart from a small crop in 2002, the first harvest was taken to Three Choirs vineyard near Newent to be bottled in 2003. The vineyard was extended in May 2003 with a second planting of 1200 more vines, and again in 2006.

When in full production, Welcombe Hills vineyard produces between 4,000 and 6,000 bottles a year, and has as many as eleven different wines on sale.
