The Old Chalk Mine
Not too hot, not too cold, not too bright. Storing wine is an art in itself – one that comes naturally to our underground chalk cellars in Berkshire.
THE PERFECT CONDITIONS
The humidity in our cellars is fairly constant as is the 12°C temperature and with no sunlight or vibrations to disturb the wine, every bottle stays in tip top condition.
FROM MINE TO WINE
Our cellars started life as a chalk mine. In the Second World War, they were converted into an aircraft factory. And in the early days of the Cold War, they were used as a top-secret, highly classified bunker. Our chalk mine cellars have even been featured in Midsomer Murders!
TAKE A TRIP UNDERGROUND
We often hold wine tastings and training sessions in our cellars. Sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with our events and we hope to welcome to to the Old Chalk Mine sometime soon!
