When Simon Bladon bought Jenkyn Place in 1997, winemaking hadn’t even crossed his mind. The property entrepreneur and Rebecca, his wife, chose the Hampshire estate as a beautiful setting in which they wanted to raise their family.
The Inspiration for Jenkyn Place Wines
When Simon attended a furniture auction in 2003 and was handed a glass of English sparkling wine for the first time, his outlook changed. He may not have bought any furniture at the auction, but instead he headed straight home and began laying plans to plant vines in the old hop fields next to his house.
A Family Concern
Jenkyn Place is now a family affair, with Camilla – Simon and Rebecca’s daughter – managing the business, and Freddie and Jack, their sons, lending a hand when needed. Plans for the future include building a wine warehouse on the estate, so more bottles can slumber and mature among the vines.
“Returning home to the heart of Hampshire is a dream come true,” smiles Camilla. “With the launch of our 2013 vintage, I’ve redesigned our packaging to give our wine the quality and contemporary look that it deserves.”
Open For Tours
Jenkyn Place has limited visitor facilities and is only open to the public on specified open days or for pre-booked tours.
It is also possible to order wine from Jenkyn Place directly and collect from the vineyard.
