Mark and Laura planted the vineyard in 2009. Before moving to Hereford to start this adventure, Mark had studied Viticulture and Oenology at Plumpton College in Sussex. As well as studying the theory of vines and wines he worked at several vineyards in the local area including one organic producer.

Organic Practices

Black Mountain try to use nature as much as possible and are currently converting the vines to organic standards through the Soil Association. No synthetic pesticides are used in the vineyard and they concentrate on physical work on the vines and soil to keep disease pressure low. Areas of the vineyard are left uncultivated to help the wildlife flourish which they believe gives the vineyard a balanced ecosystem.

Natural products such as nettles and comfrey are used as fertiliser; they also use organic seaweed sprays to help ensure healthy development of the vines. Most of the work that takes place on the vineyard is done by hand.

In the Winery

Things are kept simple in the winery, too. A lot of the work undertaken, like riddling the sparkling wine and disgorging, is done by hand in a more traditional way. This has helped the team develop new skills which always keeps things fun and interesting.
