|Stanlake Manor dates from the 15thCentury and was once part of the Windsor Great Estate. History has it that
King Charles II stayed in the manor to rendezvous with Nell Gwynne at the local "Dog and Badger".
It was the Leighton family home from 1952 to 2005, but it was not until 1979 that Jon Leighton returned
from living in Australia and realised its potential for grape growing. Valley Vineyards, as it was then known, became one of the largest makers of wine in England, with a wine making service for nearly
20 vineyards. |
In 2005, the estate was acquired by Peter and Annette Dart who have expanded and improved the facilities. The vast majority of wine is sold from the vineyard shop. The walled garden produces a rare English example of the Gewurztraminer grape, and the wine is always rated highly in competitions
Stanlake Park has around a dozen of their own wines which are award-winning and are available to buy on our website or via the Cellar shop at the Vineyard, which is open every day. You will find white, rosť and red wines. Their 'method traditionelle' sparkling wines are often compared in quality to Champagne. They also supply many different snacks for purchase, either to take away or enjoy in the beautiful vineyard gardens.
