A Winter’s Visit from Winchester’s Mayor

Posted on

We were thrilled to welcome the mayor of Winchester, Cllr. David McLean, to Exton Park Vineyard last week.

Mayor McLean enjoyed a tour of the estate and brought the sunshine with him as he was shown around the vineyard and modern winery by Fred Langdale and Corinne Seely – the Vineyard Manager and Head Winemaker . The team explained how the specific microclimate in the Meon Valley, combined with the pure chalk soils that the vines are planted on, helps to develop the distinctive and attractive flavours for which our wines are rapidly becoming recognised.

The team also shared news that many of our Hampshire-produced wines can now be found in top restaurants (including Michelin Star!) and wine merchants across the UK and abroad. Additionally, Mayor McLean was shown exciting designs for future development at the vineyard aimed to support the growing business, and was kind enough to comment that it was an “informative visit to Exton Park Vineyard, English Sparkling Wines to rival the best of the world’s Sparkling.”

It was very promising to see this level of support for our burgeoning Hampshire wine industry. Here’s to the Mayor of Winchester!
