Will Davenport started planting grape vines in 1991, carefully selecting two sites in south-east England’s High Weald. In 2000 both vineyard sites were registered for organic management with the Soil Association, making Davenport Vineyards one of only three commercial UK vineyards to become exclusively organic.
