Brightwell Vineyard


Brightwell Vineyard was first planted in the late 1980's and acquired by its present owners in 2000. It covers 16 acres and grows 8 varieties of grape including Bacchus, Chardonnay, Huxelrebe, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir. The wines produced - white, rosé, red and sparkling - are made in the on-site winery employing natural, minimum intervention methods. With our winemaker carefully guiding every process this allows the subtle, distinctive flavours of the different grape varieties to shine through. Brightwell is continuing to explore the potential of English wine, and thus produces a wide range of styles; being particularly noted for the quality of its red wines, and its outstanding English Brandy.

The wines are sold in many independent wine shops, delicatessens, farm shops and local Waitrose stores, as well as local restaurants and pubs. It is also exported to Switzerland, Singapore, Japan and the Netherlands.

Brightwell Vineyard and Winery is open for wine sales on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 - 6pm. Sales at other times are by appointment. All wines are available by mail order, have a look at our wine list for prices - there is a delivery cost of £9 for a box of up to 12 bottles.

Vineyard tours and wine tastings run most weekends from May to September, booking necessary.
Watch out for the annual Thames Valley Food and Drink Festival at the vineyard in June
