Boutique English wine, grown and made in the Teign Valley, Devon.
Huxbear Vineyard was planted by Ben and Lucy Hulland in 2007 on 14 acres of south and south west facing slopes in the Teign Valley, Devon. A further planting was undertaken in 2013 bringing the total planted area to just over 15 acres.
The vines are planted in two fields, one of 9,500 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines which is currently used entirely for sparkling wine production. The other field holds a further 7,000 vines, a mixture of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Bacchus, Schonberger and Siegerrebe, from which a mixture of still and sparkling wines are produced.
Striving for Sustainability
In the vineyard, minimum intervention vine growing and wine making practises are employed as well as integrated pest management to minimise our impact on the environment.
In the winery, which is fully off grid with most of our power produced from our on site solar array, we also strive to reduce our impact by repurposing and reusing equipment and stainless steel tanks, and by avoiding power intensive operations that are normally standard practise in our industry.
All our wines are vegan.
