Meet the Team

With a world-class winemaking team to back his ambition, Tim is successfully growing the classic Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, alongside more delicate and aromatic varieties such as Madeleine Angevine and Bacchus.

Tim Chafor

Wine Grower and Wine Maker

Tim has a heartfelt passion for his work.

As a keen gastronome, one-time movie star and a self-confessed ‘mad inventor’, Tim has certainly devised some weird and wonderful contraptions around the estate … from a hand-built frost buster alarm system, which rings his mobile once the air temperature reaches -0.5°C to an authentic wood-fired pizza oven and giant paella stove (where the flavours are subtly enhanced by vine clippings, direct from the vineyard).

“We’re so lucky with the wide-ranging soil types around the wine estate” recounts Tim “… as they vary from chalk to flinty clay. We have all the famous terroirs in one place, so the possibilities for future wines are immense”.

Tim has even been known to fly back part way through family holidays to tend to his precious vines!

“Over the summer months, we regularly open the gates to host guided vineyard tours and special wine tasting events” says Stephanie. “There is honestly nothing nicer than al fresco dining in the vineyard, with a chilled glass of fizz on a warm Summer’s evening.”

Traditional winemaking excellence

Tim and his family have carefully and passionately planned all aspects of the development of their wine estate … from the original positioning of the vineyards in the thriving Buckinghamshire villages of Gawcott and Weedon, to the planting of quality root stock on undulating south-facing slopes, sheltered from prevailing winds.

Tim tends meticulously to the vines all year round, with a team focus on hand-harvesting only the ripest and juiciest grapes, whole bunch pressing to gently extract the finest juice and combining the wisdom and experience of our world-class winemaking team to produce our premium range of still and sparkling wines.
