Since 1962 the family business has been here on the Canwell Estate. Starting out with farming, they then moved on to growing vegetables.

The next steps were opening a small florists which eventually expanded into a large wholesale business, Excelsior Dried Flowers.


In 2001, the planting of 8000 vines started and a few years later a winery and a wine shop on the premises. The business has since grown to include a fishery.

In 2016, the production of gins started, along side our wines and Buzzards Valley continues to be a great success.

The story is far more detailed and a great way to hear more about it is to book onto one of our Vineyard tours!
