Stopham Estate


Simon Woodhead planted Stopham Vineyard in 2007 with the aim of making the best English still wine. This was not an easy task given the rising quality of English and Welsh wines. To give them the best chance of success they chose Stopham as their vineyard because of its free draining soil, southerly aspect, low altitude and beautiful location. The vineyard is located in the South Downs National Park, on the banks of the River Arun in West Sussex. 

In 2010 Simon was joined by Tom Barlett - in perfect timing for the first use of the vineyard. Both Simon and Tom studied at Plumpton College in East Sussex, where their passion for wines began. Stopham Estate specialise in white wines. 

One of their main priorities at Stopham Estate is to protect and preserve the environment. Every decision they make when making wines they always think about sustaining the environment.
