A small test area of 500 vines was planted by Jon Leighton in 1979. The original vineyard was called Thames Valley Vineyard, later shortened to Valley Vineyards.

  • Stanlake Park Wine Estate Regatta Dry 2004


    Grassy, nettley notes on nose, touch of sweetcorn, dry, high acidity, light bodied, citrus, spoilt by slightly hot, bitter finish. Still , being English it could form part of a lovely tradition - fish 'n chips in paper on the seafront -the acidity would cut though the fat like vinegar! Read More
