Family owned business. Will Davenport has been making wines for 20 years. The winery is at Limney Farm, an old dairy farm with buildings that made easy conversion for their new winemaking purpose. Since 1993 they have extended the buildings for a dedicated bottling area and temperature-controlled store. Since 2010 the winery is now solar powered. Solar panels generate enough electricity to run the whole winery. The site is south facing and sheltered with mainly clay soils.
