We are pleased to welcome Richard Goring, CEO of the Wiston Estate, as our guest speaker for the evening.
The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. This historic family home nestles in fifteen acres of formal gardens, surrounded by a further six thousand acres of parkland.
The Wiston Estate Vineyard was planted in 2006 with the traditional varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and it spreads across 16 acres. Situated on the south facing slopes of the South Downs, the vineyard was awarded ‘Winery of the Year’ in the WineGB Awards 2018. The traditional Coquard press at Wiston is one of only four outside of France and is unique to the UK.
