Hencote Estate

The Hencote vineyard is situated on the Ellesmere Road on the northern outskirts of Shrewsbury. It is here that Andy and Dora Stevens made their home back in 1997 following time abroad that had taken them to many different places.

What started as a hobby in 2009 with just 160 vines has grown into a rather more serious enterprise today with over 24,000 bottles produced annually. This expansion followed a survey in 2012 which demonstrated the suitability of their site for grape production and they decided to take the plunge, developing both the vineyards and building a winery and restaurant in 2015. It is very much a family affair with son, Mark the General Manager, and daughter Vivienne taking on the role of Events Manager. Where they have looked further afield is by bringing in the expertise of winemaker Gavin Patterson, originally from Zimbabwe via South Africa, all the way to Shropshire! While it is true to say he has had a fairly sharp learning curve in adapting his knowledge to some new varieties and the vagaries of the British weather — his talent has overcome all the trials. Te grape varieties they have planted reflect the changing nature of the climate and certainly have a bent towards sparkling wine production, with the three classic Champagne varieties of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay all represented, as well as Seyval Blanc, widely planted here for fizz production, and small amounts of Solaris, Pinot Noir Précoce and Rondo, the latter two with red wine production in mind.
