Ham Street Wines is the project of husband & wife team Lucie and Jules, who planted four hectares of vines just on the edge the Romney marsh in Kent four years ago. Starting the project as a way of re-connecting with nature whilst still working full-time jobs in accounting, Lucie and Jules were quickly bitten by the regenerative agriculture bug, understanding that improving soil health, promoting biodiversity and doing as little as possible to disturb the natural balance was the key to healthy fruit, and happy wines. They are currently awaiting organic certification, but truly go above and beyond the minimum requirements, working with biodynamic teas and preparations, and having been no-till since 2021.

Made from a single barrel of 80% Chardonnay topped up with skin contact Bacchus and left to age for 10 months before bottling without sulphur or other additions. A hazy pale gold in the glass with aromas of elderflower, green apple, fennel and nuts.
