Once an 18th Century Hunting Lodge in the heart of Royal Berkshire, The Vineyard is now widely regarded as a Temple to Californian Wine.
And while we've retained some of the original old world character and charm, there's more than a hint of New World about the place.
Which is not surprising when you consider the inspiration behind it.
Sir Peter Michael's world-class winery was established in 1982 on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County.
The wine growing philosophy was modelled on the French tradition with some modern influences.
Terroir would always be the single most important feature, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated, and there would be a one hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate.
The result is a product of high quality and limited quantity.
You can see that principle at work at The Vineyard too.
