Danbury Ridge Estate

Danbury Ridge Estate

Danbury Ridge was founded by two generations of the Bunker family: Michael and Heather Bunker and, their daughters Janine and Sophie. The first vines were planted in 2014 with a focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties which would take advantage of the micro climate in Essex. 

In 2020, the family took the decision to remove herbicide use across thier vineyards and now use mechanical weeding in the growing season and a local flock of 25 sheep over the winter. The sheep graze the vineyards keeping the grass short and removing weeds without compacting the earth or harming the vines. To balance soil nutrients and provide the vines with everything they need, they compost all grape marc post-harvest and utilise it across our estate vineyard.

The winery is also designed to be energy effient with solar panels on the side of the building and reusing any waste water. 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle" is the ethos for this family run winery.
