Tim Phillips on Walled Vineyards and English Sauvignon Blanc
This show was published 10 August 2012
We talk with Tim Philips about his tiny walled garden in the New Forest near the South Coast of England. The site is just a quarter of an acre and was orginally part of an estate used for growing vegetables. The brick wall shelters teh vines from wind but also absorbs the heat during the day and radiates its back during the evening. Tim tells us about the effects of walls on vines and how the orientation of the walls is important. We also hear about English Sauvignon Blanc but Tim also grows Riesling and Chardonnay.
