Exton Park is situated in England’s picturesque Hampshire countryside on the South Downs. The vineyard covers approximately 55 acres of gently sloping land and is known for producing high-quality sparkling wines using traditional Champagne methods.
Exton Park focuses primarily on three classic grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These grapes are carefully hand-harvested and meticulously processed to create exceptional sparkling wines. The region’s cool climate and chalky soils contribute to the wines’ elegant acidity, fine bubbles, and distinct character.
The vineyard’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship is notable. Exton Park employs environmentally friendly practices, including minimal intervention in the vineyard, organic treatments, and the use of natural predators to control pests. This approach helps maintain the biodiversity of the surrounding area and ensures the vineyard’s long-term health.
Exton Park produces a range of sparkling wines, including their flagship, Exton Park Brut Reserve. This wine showcases a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, expressing the vineyard’s unique characteristics. Other cuvées, such as Blanc de Noirs and Rosé, offer different expressions of the estate’s terroir and grape varieties.
