A Trip to Aldwick Estate Winery

Last week, we had the pleasure of visiting Aldwick Estate, located a stones throw from Bristol Airport, where Sandy Luck and her dedicated team have been producing award winning wines since 2013. Rain and wind were no-where to be seen as the sun shone across bright blue skies and the temperature soared. Comments of ‘we could be in the South of France!’ could be heard across rows of Regent, Madeleine Angevine, Seyval and Bacchus grapes all bulging from their vines, enjoying some last minute pre-harvest sun.

After hearing about the history of Aldwick from Sandy, where her family have been farming for 5 generations, she accompanied us on a tour of the vineyards which enjoy far stretching views across 11 acres of vines and the Somerset countryside beyond. Aldwick only use grapes from their own vineyards, which ensures they have 100% control over the whole winemaking process; from planting the vines to bottling their wines.
