Sixteen Ridges Vineyard

From traditional farming to creative innovation

All of Sixteen Ridges' wines are produced at our winery in the historic town of Ledbury. At first sight, they operate a well organised farm and winery, but lift the lid off of the winery, and discover their strive to challenge convention; an approach which is at the core of their entrepreneurial owner Angus, and their award winning winemaker Simon. From single varietal trials of vines grown under tunnels, to small batch co-fermentation, or apple ice cider production, they are constantly challenging ourselves to entice our customers to try something new.

Sixteen Ridges vineyard was planted in 2007 on an ancient ridge and furrow field (hence Sixteen Ridges). South facing and a natural amphitheatre shape, it enjoys a perfect aspect with excellent shelter. Here, their multi award winning Pinot Noir, used in their sparkling and much sought after red wines, thrive.

Redbank vineyard was planted in 2012 by the passionate, knowledgeable and pioneering hand of growers Cilla and Tim. It is located on the south-facing slopes of the Wall Hills; where in the 13th century St Thomas Cantilupe, the last English Saint, is recorded to have demanded the re-planting of vines. A testament to this spot's history and heritage as an exceptional site for vines.
