Grape Harvest at Trotton Estate Vineyard
Over the last decade, the production of English wines has has risen sharply. The County of West Sussex is at the heart of this revolution partly due to the ‘green sand ‘ soil and its favourable south facing slopes. My knowledge of wine is limited to the consumption stage but one man who has a wealth of expertise is Iain Heggie of The Exceptional English Wine Company. After a chance encounter Iain invited me to document the harvet at The Trotton Estate Vineyard. Situated close to the town of Midhurst, this is a truly picturesque spot overlooking the South Downs.
Here’s selection of photos from an early morning visit back in the Autumn.
