Welcome to Wrights Vineyard

Based in Surrey, Wrights Vineyard is our small wine estate where we make quality English wines. The climate in Surrey and the soil in our vineyard helps in growing high quality grapes with intense flavours, enticing aroma and soft tannins. I, Luke Wright, handpick the grapes to ensure that only the best quality grapes reach the winery. The grapes are then destemmed, crushed and fermented with quality yeast, with care being taken at each step of the wine making process. The wines produced are aged in oak barrels. This is done to achieve a rich, full bodied taste and aroma.

It is my love for wine that urged me to start my own website on wine, where people could learn more about wine and winemaking. Please feel free to send us any tips and anecdotes on the topic, and rediscover your love for wine.

The History of English Wine Making
