Our family have been at Alder for generations. Fed up with dairy farming, Bob and Anne sold the cows and created Alder Sportswear in the 60’s. Their venture has since become the UK’s leading Surfing hardware producer and is still based in the old cow sheds on the farm today.
In the same spirit of diversification, we decided to transform one south facing field of the farm into our vineyard.
In 2008 we planted our very first vines and we have never looked back. The decision to create a vineyard in Devon came from a huge love of the outdoors, alongside a passion for wine and the desire to be challenged!
Since starting our English wine journey we have well and truly ‘caught the bug’. Tending to the vines with the stunning rolling hills of Dartmoor in the background is hard to beat.
