We planted the first phase of the vineyard, ably assisted by our four children, in April 2006, with a further plantation in April 2007.

The vineyard currently comprises two sites surrounding our home at The Ancre Hill on the outskirts of Monmouth town. The Folly View site of 6 acres is principally planted with Chardonnay and Albariño. The newer Town site of 3 acres is totally dedicated to Pinot Noir. Further plantings at Newton Court Farm from 2016 will eventually bring our total plantings to around 12 hectares.
