Vineyard Description

Greyfriars is located on the sunny south facing chalk slopes of the Hog’s Back at Puttenham, just outside Guildford in Surrey. The original vineyard was planted in 1989 and since taking over in 2010 we have expanded the area under vine to almost 50 acres on three sites focusing on producing stunning English Sparkling Wine. We have also built a brand new Winery containing state of the art winemaking equipment and dug a natural chalk underground cellar for ageing our wine prior to release.

Our vineyards are predominantly planted with the three classic Champagne varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. However, we also have small plots of Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. We are producing a range of spectacular English Sparkling Wines reflecting the unique local soil conditions, climate and heritage of the Surrey North Downs. Our early releases of wine since 2011 have gained critical acclaim and have already won a number of prizes in international competitions including the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Come and see us at Greyfriars. We are open by appointment for tours and events and we usually have some limited release wines only available at the vineyard. Let us tell you our story, enjoy our wines and see how we as a family vineyard do things a little differently.
