Volcanic Wines of The World
Daws Hill Vineyard & Winery
Daws Hill Vineyard is a small family run, second generation vineyard and winery in Radnage, Buckinghamshire. Originally planted in 2004 and extended in 2007, specialising in Sparkling wines and ciders.
We grow classic Champagne grapes, Pinot noir, Pinot meunier and Chardonnay on our south facing slope. Each year we hand pick our grapes to ensure only the finest quality vintage.
All our wines our made on site in our converted stables winery, which is unusual for our size vineyard - 5000 vines. This gives us the ultimate control over every stage, meaning we can make sure each bottle is lovingly cared for. Many of the processes still done by hand and in the traditional way.
Our wines are a blend of the classic champagne grapes and made in the traditional method, aged on the lees for a minimum of 2 years.
At the Thames and Chilterns Vineyard Association we have won best sparkling wines for 3 years in a row.
In 2019, the 2013 Sparkling White wine won the Gold and the Best overall wine and our 2013 Rose won a silver award.
Cider Is Wine
Cider is Wine is asking drinkers – and wine drinkers in particular – to take a new look at cider and to put aside bad memories of early youth to discover what are sophisticated, elegant and delicious drinks with a rightful place alongside wine.
As well as their 100% not-from-concentrate apple and pear content, all these ciders are naturally lower in alcohol – indeed, on average about half the alcohol of most wines – as well as being gluten free and, in the vast majority of cases, vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Tasting is believing – watch this space for some exciting events coming your way!
