Description

Jacob Leadley is the award-winning winemaker for the very successful Hattingley Valley. Over dinner with friends and family a couple of years ago, talk turned to the idea of creating small production sparkling wine from locally sourced grapes – Black Chalk was born! Black Chalk is a wine proud of its English heritage, with roots firmly planted in the chalklands of southern England. They use the traditional method to create Black Chalk, using the tried and tested grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. At Black Chalk Wines, they hand-select the very best locally grown grapes before beautifully crafting each wine, they are not rushed but allowed time to age in order to produce English sparkling wine that stands out from the crowd. This year they built their state-of-the-art winery by securing over £1 million of additional funding. The overall vision is to establish a creative space – the first of its kind in the U.K. –which will allow collaborations with individuals wanting to make wine but lacking the facilities and expertise. Jacob will welcome working with those who are keen to be hands-on and part of the creative process.
