Hattingley Valley was established in 2008, when Simon Robinson planted the first south-facing site. A modern, eco-friendly winery in Wield was completed in 2010. Their first wine was released in August 2013.
The 2011 vintage was a stunning example of what can be achieved in England. The Chardonnay grapes were harvested between the second and third weeks of October with a good sugar:acidity ratio. The record breaking temperatures in October (up to 29°C) coupled with plenty of sunshine, contributed to exceptionally ripe fruit and some wonderful wines.
