Wine Maker: Tony Cox
1.5 hectare vineyard overlooking the Avon valley east of Bath. White and red wines available from local
shops and from vineyard shop.The name is derived from Simon de Montfort who is believed to have owned
land in the area. in 1250AD. The labels have a Roman theme. Near the vineyard are 2 Roman roads to Bath.
A Roman coin was found beneath a vine. Produces a very good red and an excellent Kerner- the nearest UK equivalent
of a Riesling. A major honour for the vineyard was the serving of both red and white wines on a Trafalgar anniversary on board HMD Victory in 2006|
