Situated on a slope leading down to the Tillingham River and ran by Ben Walgate, Tillingham is producing some really exciting natural wines. Organic and biodynamic practices are used in the vineyard with poly-culture farming taking place as well. Chalk and clay soils in vineyards that are some of the sunniest in the UK.
