Daniel & Nicola Ham work from their cellar in Wiltshire, sourcing the best grapes they can find from mostly local vineyards & making pure & exciting wines completely free of additives.
Watchtower is made from Pinot Meunier pressed directly in a traditional basket press and aged in amphora. A coppery rose in colour, with a lovely mouthfeel and notes of orchards fruits & cherries
Finding good organic fruit at the volume needed proved tricky for Dan & Nic in 2020 -The fruit for Watchtower was sourced from grower Colin Hawkins outside Dorchester. Colin works conventionally but diligently in the vineyard, with every process undertaken himself, by hand.
