Based in the sunny and sheltered Waveney Valley in south Norfolk, winemaker Ben Witchell crafts wines using a blend of innovation and a respect for tradition.
Flint Vineyard’s debut release includes the award-winning Bacchus 2016 which has been named East Anglia Wine of the Year 2017.
The site itself overlooks the villages of Earsham and Bungay of the Waveney Valley. Facing south-east, the vines catch the early morning sun, which also heats up the sandy soil quickly.
Planted in 2016, the vines won’t be cropped until 2019 to ensure they are established as healthily as possible. Until this time, Ben is working closely with vine growers in East Anglia to source the best grapes possible. 2016, being one of the best on record, provided some fantastic Bacchus, Pinot blanc and Pinot noir; varieties which are all planted at Flint Vineyard.
