Tillingham Wines

TILLINGHAM WINES, BEN WALGATE, East Sussex

Tillingham is a young winery near Rye in East Sussex. Home Farm is a mixed farm, which dates from the 13th century, is home to vineyards, fruit trees, ancient woodland and livestock. Ben Walgate is already making waves with his range of exciting wines and ciders, made with minimal intervention. Everything is fermented with its own yeasts in a variety of vessels, many in Georgian terracotta qvevri buried in an adjacent oast house. In their own words: ‘Our philosophy at Tillingham would be best summarised as progressive: incorporating what we know of the best scientific and technological knowledge available to us, whilst championing ancient traditions and best practice learnt from millennia of farming and winemaking.’
