Wiston Estate

Family heritage, chalk vineyards, passion for perfection.

The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs and the flat clay soils of the weald. Sussex beef herds, grazing sheep and arable crops have been part of the Estate landscape for centuries but it was not until the arrival of Harry Goring’s South African wife, Pip, in 1972, that the idea of planting a vineyard took hold.

It was Pip’s long held conviction that the Estate had the potential to grow high quality grapes. The original south facing 16 acre vineyard, planted in 2006 on chalk, was the fruit of her dream and tenacity. Wiston Estate is a family venture, small in scale, impressive in aspiration and unrelenting in pursuit of quality. Under the aegis of award-winning winemaker Dermot Sugrue, the tight-knit team spares no effort in the vineyard or winery and the wines’ multiple gold medals & trophies bare testament to the land and their work.
