Furleigh Estate

Categories No Categories

This event will take place at Furleigh Estate at Salway Ash, just outside Bridport.    Four years of careful planning and investment has transformed the former dairy farm into a modern and productive vineyard and winery.  Over 22,000 vines grow on the south facing slopes of the Estate. 15,000 of these are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meurnier used to produce our classic quality sparkling wines. Bacchus and Rondo are also grown to produce fine still wines.  A 5,000 square foot winery was built in 2007. This now accommodates a specialist pneumatic press, designed to carry out the very gentle whole bunch pressing required for quality sparkling wines. Temperature controlled stainless steel tanks from Italy and Germany, oak barrels from Cognac and riddling and dosage machinery from Epernay in France complete the major equipment.

The team at Furleigh will provide a tour of the winery and we will be able to sample a selection of their award winning wines.  The event also includes a buffet of locally sourced food supplied by Mandy Alford of Simply Delicious catering.  Early booking is advisable as places are limited for this event.
