Close to the historic town of Monmouth in Wales, just two miles from the border with England, lies Ancre Hill Estates. Here in the Wye Valley, the first vines were planted by Richard and Joy Morris in 2006. First wines were released in 2008. Since 2011 their son David has been working here, and he now makes the wines. 2011 is also the year that Ancre Hill converted to biodynamic viticulture.
