Greyfriars is located on the sunny south facing chalk slopes of the Hog’s Back at Puttenham, just outside Guildford in Surrey. The original vineyard was planted in 1989 and since 2010 has been expanded almost 50 acres on three sites focusing on producing stunning English Sparkling Wine. A brand new Winery containing state of the art winemaking equipment and dug a natural chalk underground cellar for ageing our wine prior to release has been added.
Greyfriars vineyards are predominantly planted with the three classic Champagne varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. There are also small plots of Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc and Greyfriars are producing a range of spectacular English Sparkling Wines reflecting the unique local soil conditions, climate and heritage of the Surrey North Downs. Early releases of their wine since 2011 have gained critical acclaim and have already won a number of prizes in international competitions including the Decanter World Wine Awards.
