More Info: White Castle is a 10 acre, family-run vineyard near the towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth. Robb and Nicola planted their first vines in 2009 and have carefully selected the varieties that are best suited to the soil and micro climate. They currently grow Pinot Noir, Seyval Blanc, Siegerrebe, Phoenix, Regent, Rondo & Cabernet Franc.
The grapes are carefully hand harvested and selected before immediately transporting to the winery for pressing to ensure they retain their freshness and fruity aromas.
This wine was named after their grandson Harry, who they hope might take over the vineyard in the future.
