The Heroes vineyard is a passion project of James and Eloise Thomas. The vineyard is sustainably grown (zero synthetic pesticides used) and the best possible quality wines are produced without compromise using non-interventionist techniques: no irrigation, no additions, no fining or filtering (reds), natural yeasts, and minimal sulphur additions at bottling only. These wines are made to stand up on their merit, wines that reflect their origins.
In James’s own words “Heroes’ Vineyard was born out of my desire to make wines of the best possible quality without compromise and using non-interventionist methods.”
