Wine Culture

 Awards

The vineyards are planted on southerly slopes where exposure to the cool sea breezes give a slow and extended grape ripening period aiding colour and tannin formation on the red grapes and flavour and acidity on the white. Barton’s first wine, Chenin blanc, was vinified in 2003 and awards has gone to most of our wines since.
