HOW WE GROW OUR VINES
The vineyard of 18ha is planted on brown loam /red claysoils in an area that enjoys a long growing season, with low incidence of disease and usually a dry autumn for harvest. The vines are planted on a 3mx2m grid running north/south and trained to a vertical shoot position trellis
The vineyard is now managed organically as is the olive grove, wenow have full Biodynamic certification and are very determined to achieve our goals of sustainable farming. The whole property 400 ha is now converted to fully organic management, so you can look forward to organically grown beef ,lamb ,grains and maybe some veg in the future. This is not a huge change for us ,as we have been committed to sustainability, but we are now convinced we need to go the extra yards to really make a difference.
Wallington’s wines are made on site in the unusual and handsome Straw Bale Winery. Winemaking concentrates on small batches of carefully blended handpicked wines.

Over the years we have used many organic preparations to help balance and provide the nutrient requirements of the vines, from straw mulches to worm castings.Our challenge this year is to a large compost heap.
We have Dorper sheep ,which are abreed which is great for producing prime lamb for eating, and also shed their wool so do not need shearing .They help us fertilise the vineyard in the winter and also eat down and weeds that have appeared
