Stopham Estate

Stopham Estate Vineyard’s story began in 2007 when winemaker Simon Woodhead planted 21,000 vines on the six-hectare (15-acre) estate between Petworth and Pulborough in the South Downs. Joined by Assistant Winemaker Tom Bartlett in 2010, just in time for the first vintage, the pair today share a common passion for English wine and work hard to raise the bar crafting inspired, sustainable wines from Sussex land.

Each vintage from Stopham Estate tells the story of the changeable Sussex countryside, with all of its unique trials and tribulations. They only use grapes grown on the estate and nurture our hand- picked vines to craft white wines that offer fruity flavours and a crisp natural acidity that’s good enough for royalty – genuinely.
