Chet Valley Vineyard’s latest events and endeavours

Owners John and Bridget Hemmant, who planted the first vines in the valley over a decade ago, aim to fuse traditionality with innovation across every aspect of Chet Valley Vineyard – from their ‘bold but faithful’ English winemaking techniques, to their vast commitment to sustainable operations. Here on their winery news and events blog, you’ll discover a continuation of this attitude, with posts including the couple’s best-loved pairings and recipes, updates on the site’s continual drive towards sustainability, and notes from John’s experimentation with new grape varieties.
