Vineyard Description

Fenny Castle Vineyard is situated right on the edge of the Somerset Levels in the tiny village of Worth, close to Wells, England's smallest cathedral city. Owners James and Gill Cumming dreamt of planting a small vineyard on the steep slopes overlooking Glastonbury Tor when they arrived at the farm in 2005. Years passed and the idea was buried in the bustle of running a company, farming a flock of Suffolk sheep and bringing up a young family. Four years later James decided to take the plunge and enrolled for a Viticulture and Winemaking degree at Plumpton College in East Sussex and so began our journey into the wine industry.

We planted the first parcel of Bacchus vines in 2011 and the main vineyard of Ortega and Pinot Noir the following year. Five years on and we have a range of wines for sale. Ortega is our signature variety and in 2015 we produced a classic and a barrel fermented version. We have a still Pinot Noir rosé in an off dry style and a tremendous Pinot Noir sparkling rosé. 2017 will see the release of two fists, a Blanc de Noir sparkling and a Bacchus still wine.
