Furleigh Estate is 85 acres of vineyard, lakes and grazing land surrounded by woodland. The area is teeming with wildlife; buzzards fly overhead; deer, pheasants and partridge roam the vineyard, while heron fish regularly from the lakes to which our resident geese return each Spring.
Four years of careful planning and investment has transformed the former dairy farm into a modern and productive vineyard and winery.
Over 22,000 vines grow on the south facing slopes of the Estate. 15,000 of these are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meurnier used to produce our classic quality sparkling wines. Bacchus and Rondo are also grown to produce fine still wines.
A temperature controlled cellar provides the ideal conditions to store still wines and mature sparkling wines on their lees, so as to develop the best flavours and mousse possible.
Furleigh Estate donate 10p from every bottle sold of their “Tyrannosaurus Red” wine to the Jurassic Coast Trust. They also host Jurassic Coast-themed evenings as part of the partnership. Check our Events page for any upcoming evenings.
“After childhoods spent playing on the Jurassic Coast, we at Furleigh Estate thought it would be great to give something back to the Jurassic Coast Trust for future generations – now that our buckets and spades have long since been put away. Furleigh Estate wines are grown and made less than five miles from the sea and our links with the coastline go back a long way.” – Rebecca Hansford, Furleigh Estate
