Laverstoke Park

The vineyard of Laverstoke Park comprises of 9 hectares of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier set within the rolling Hampshire countryside.

At Laverstoke they believe in quality over quantity, each year producing Limited Edition, Vintage sparkling wines that reflect the true terroir of our biodynamic site.

Within each of these varieties, clones were selected for their sustainability to produce quality organic sparkling wine in the often difficult UK growing conditions.

The site on the vineyard was chosen because of the slope, exposure to the sun and also to help manage the vigour of the vine and the impact of disease.

A small area was initially planted in 2006 then the majority was planted in 2007 at a vine density of 5000 vines per hectare.

These vines are managed organically and biodynamically with the focus on developing the soil to support the vine.

This involves applying Laverstoke’s own compost made on site and regular testing using the onsite laboratory to ensure the correct biology in the soil.

There is also regular applications of compost tea to the foliage of the vine and the inter row to assist the vine in its defence against disease.

The management of the vineyard is very much based on trial and tested techniques with the health of the vine the most important consideration in everything they do.
