London Born is owned and operated by the Hoare family who are originally from London, England. Our historic 1800’s 50 acre estate, “Highland Vineyard” was purchased in 2007 and at that time the farm’s principal crop was Concord grapes used for making juice. Since then we have removed these vines, keeping two rows for prosperity and have installed drainage and irrigation to the north of the farm where we have planted vinifera vines with our first vintages released in 2010. Our varieties are Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Riesling. We have kept the existing 50+ year old Marechal Foch vines with their small crop of grapes; the care given these produces an intensely flavored, satisfying full bodied wine.
