Black Mountain

BLACK MOUNTAIN, Herefordshire, England

Black Mountain Vineyard in Herefordshire, planted by Mark & Laura Smith in 2009, has been an evolution with no rulebook. They replanted with better-matched hybrids after classic English sparkling varieties quickly proved unsuitable. Organic conversion began in 2018, and they’ve been zero sulphur in the winery since.

Breaking ground at the 52nd parallel, in 2021 Mark began experimenting with his own take on Korean Natural Farming, producing alternative treatments to prioritise soil and vine health. Working with no additions in the cellar, the limited quantity of wines released are eagerly anticipated each year.
