Simon Woodhead planted Stopham vineyard in 2007 with the aim of making the best English still white wines. This is no easy task, given the rising quality of English and Welsh wines. Better viticultural practices, improved winemaking techniques and technology, international training and increasing temperatures are all contributing to these quality improvements.

Simon was joined by Tom Bartlett in 2010 just in time for the first vintage. Both Simon and Tom studied at Plumpton College in East Sussex, where they became passionate about English wine and developed the belief that we can produce something special from our land.

Stopham is very much a working vineyard, but give them a shout in advance and you’re welcome to pop by the winery and collect a case or two. Tours usually run on Saturday mornings and there is often an open day in September, combined with other events in the village.
