Press Review

"I visited Richard and Joy Morris in the dim and distant past, and they are pioneers in their (literal) field.  While I would love to recommend their entire portfolio, I cannot. Some of their wines are just too edgy and complicated for my tastes.  I am a classically trained old fart whose flavour boundaries were set some half-century ago, and while the Morrises move things along with their creative pet nats and the like, I prefer to settle into my lounger with a glass of this terrific BdeN.  I love their Bio-worthiness and I respect their zero-dosage stance.  I adore the four-year-long lees contact and lack of interventions during the entire making of this wine.  But what I value more than any of these badges is the flavour of this deeply invigorating and resplendent wine.  This is not only a decent Welsh drop but also a wildly delicious Pinot Noir that teases all the senses with its restless energy and eventual completeness.  I take my hat off to you Morris folk – you did it. You made sense of the white noise surrounding Biodymanism and the fervent and oft misguided no/lo-intervention movement and ‘grew’ great wine in a world where hundreds of others failed."

Ancre Hill Estates

Ancre Hill Estates is the brainchild of Richard Morris, his wife Joy and their four children. Richard’s back ground is in the City. The first vineyards were planted in April 2006 the second the following year.

The first site, called Folly View, is a six acre site planted mostly to Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc with a small amount of Triomphe and Pinot Noir. The second ‘Town’ site is 4 acres of Pinot Noir. Both vineyards have a south facing aspect and have limestone soils. Richard has sunk a huge amount of thought and effort into making Ancre Hill a thoroughly 'eco-friendly' winery; all water is re-used having been through an extensive reed-bed filtration system, while the walls are made of straw bales! The aim is to be as carbon neutral as possible. The vineyard is set in the middle of the Wye valley with the Brecon Beacons to the North, and you can visit for tours, tastings and a cup of tea!

Press reviews

"Even when estates in Sussex and Kent were successfully producing great sparkling, it was still largely unthinkable that it would also be possible deep among the green, rolling hills of Monmouthshire. Well, step forward the lovely Ancre Hill Estate, based near the town of Monmouth itself, which produces a brilliant range of still and sparkling wines, all minimal intervention, organic and some also biodynamic, from a 12-acre south-facing vineyard. The blanc de noirs is 100pc pinot noir that’s very dry and packed with precise apple, nut and citrus flavours."
