Castle Brook Vineyard
Castle Brook Vineyard is run by the Chinn family, who are best known for producing Wye Valley Asparagus at Cobrey Farms in Herefordshire.
Our Castle Brook Classic Cuvee is a traditionally styled Brut, which has been made with Champagne grapes to produce the highest quality English sparkling wine.
Tucked away in the meandering Wye Valley of South Herefordshire, we planted the Castlebrook vines in 2004, on the site of an ancient Roman vineyard. Lying on a steep south-facing slope, in the rain shadow of the Black Mountains, but with plenty of warm westerly air, the area is renowned for its fruit and vegetable production, and has the second largest area of grape vines in the UK.
We grow 21 different clones of the three Champagne grape varieties – Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay – on three different rootstocks, which allows us to create really exciting blends.

From cider making to arts and crafts, from the industrial legacy of the Forest of Dean and its woods and hills to its towns and villages, all are within striking distance of the town.
