Rathfinny Wine Estate

Planning permission granted for our wine processing and storage facility

We have recently received approval from the South Downs National Park Planning Authority for permission to build two, admittedly large, new buildings to process our wine – bottling, riddling, disgorging and labeling, and store our sparkling wine ‘on-lees’ – whilst the wine matures and the secondary fermentation takes place and the bubbles appear. After a nervous presentation we got unanimous support from the committee for our plans. Thank you to the SDNPA as we had no plan B!
