Jenkyn Place is situated in idyllic countryside and the vineyards have been created with excellence in mind and have been designed and planted to produce top quality English sparkling wines. The vineyards cover 12 acres (around 5 hectares) and are perfectly located on sheltered, chalky, south-facing slopes, 100m above sea level on the North Hampshire Downs.
Jenkyn Place is the brainchild of property investor and entrepreneur, Simon Bladon. Originally from Yorkshire, Simon and his wife, Rebecca, moved to Jenkyn Place in Hampshire in 1997 and, after extensive renovations, turned their thoughts to the abandoned hop fields next to the property.
The award-winning wines are made in the traditional Champagne method, from classic grape varieties and spend around three years on the lees before being released to the public. Quality control is paramount throughout the whole process – from the design, planting and tending of the vineyards to the actual production of the wines.
