Learn more about who we are and what we do.
Nestled next to the Pevensey Levels Nature Reserve and less than 5 miles from the sea in East Sussex, Henners Vineyard was established in the picturesque village of Herstmonceux in 2007. Planted with the three classic sparkling grape varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the vineyard is in one of the driest, sunniest pockets of England.
The vineyard benefits from a strong coastal influence, low elevation and rich, free-draining clay soils making the site ideally suited for the production of quality sparkling and still wines. Sea breezes are key to our success, minimising frost risk, reducing disease pressure and bringing a crisp salinity to our wines.
In the winery, we take a non interventionist approach, made possible by the quality of the fruit. We have multiple vine clones and varieties planted to give us a broad palate of wines for final blending and play with reserve wines and oak barrels to contribute character, depth, richness and layers to our wines. Our wines are fermented and bottled on-site with our small, dedicated team responsible for every aspect of production.
Our range of award-winning English still & sparkling wines seek to respect, yet challenge, tradition. From grape to glass our team produces wines with character, style and quality. We are proud to be founder members of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain.
