David Timson has had a life long passion for wine and viticulture. Mike Jones had some available land and had been involved in an organic fruit-tree business called Walcot Organic Nursery Ltd. They both successfully completed the Principles of Vine-growing course at Plumpton College, the UK centre for wine education, before planting the vineyard in 2010. The first harvest was in 2013.
