In 2014 we planted our vineyard in an acre of land on a large sunny field to the east of Mudgley Farm house, reviving an ancient tradition: 800 years ago the monks of Glastonbury grew grapes on these very same south-facing slopes of Mudgley Hill. The views are still as stunning todayas they would have been then.
The Mowbarton Estate has 1250 vines, a mixture of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay planted in view of Glastonbury Tor. Long hours of summer sunlight, freedom from frost, and gentle breezes from the Bristol Channel produce a classic cool climate sparkling wine.
We picked our first harvest of grapes in October 2016, and sipped our first Mowbarton Estate Somerset Sparkling Wine on Christmas Day 2018.
