Will Davenport started planting grape vines in 1991, carefully selecting two sites in south-east England's High Weald. In 2000 both vineyard sites were registered for organic management with the Soil Association, making Davenport Vineyards one of only three commercial UK vineyards to become exclusively organic. Will is constantly looking for ways to improve, mostly by doing less rather than more so his 2007 wines are unfiltered, something of a first amongst English growers.
