Kerry Vale Vineyard is home to 6,000 vines. We have three varieties - Rondo, Phoenix & Solaris, all ideally suited for our English climate. Spaced at 1.2m in rows 2.3m apart - there are 62 rows with a combined length from the first vine to the last of just under 13 kilometres or approximately 8 miles!
To support the vines we use just over 100,000 metres of wire, around 1,200 posts, wire tensioners and post anchors to ensure the rows don’t fall over.
The vines are pruned on a Double Guyot trellising system, which as the name implies, is French in origin and trains the vines to adopt an M shape.
For that special and unusual gift idea, we offer an Adopt a Vine package.
