West Street Vineyard

West Street Vineyard brings the New World wine experience to East Anglia.  Opening spring 2013 at West Street’s boutique micro-vineyard in Essex.  The visitor centre will include a dedicated wine wall  for automated tasting to showcase the regional wines from East Anglia and offer over 20 English wines in an idyllic location in West Street, situated within the picturesque village of Coggeshall.

The contemporary, open-plan style, 21st century eco- barn has been inspired by the beautiful historic Essex barn constructed by the medieval Cistercian monks at Coggeshall Priory. The glass and timber structure, with a natural slate roof and calm neutral interiors, will blend into the landscape amongst the vines that lie within the local conservation area. West Street Vineyard Wine Barn will offer a modern and informal cafe, private dining room facilities, tasting cellar, innovative wine wall for education, conference facilities and a stylish wine and gift shop.

The original 30 year old vineyard of 800 Faber vines have been expanded with an additional 3000 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines to cover 1.4 hectares on the 5.5 acre domain owned by the local Mohan family.
The viticulture experience will include wine walking tours, tastings, fine wines and fresh local foods to be enjoyed from the terraces overlooking the banks of the River Blackwater. Sip a glass of award-winning West Street wine, or sample a great coffee, artisan bread and locally produced meats and cheeses in an ecological and environmentally-friendly barn. The vineyard at West Street is the perfect setting for a contemporary alfresco experience in East Anglia.

The Mohan Family

Local Essex family, Jane and Stephen Mohan, together with their three children, followed their dream and bought their own vineyard in 2009 and have already won two Bronze awards for their first vintage of 2010. They sold their home in Wethersfield to build their wine centre and plan to build their dream house on the estate to complete their family ambition. Their inspiration came from the New World where destination vineyards are part of family life.

Jane is an ambitious and driven businesswoman with a background in finance, marketing and international PR consultancy in London. Her passion and interest in wine has broadened her expertise into completing viticulture courses at Plumpton College in Sussex and various recognised wine tasting exams - she is continuing her wine education ; Jane has devoted the last few years to building the business for her family. Stephen has a strong commercial and operational background in finance and consulting with a passion for fine wines. He can often be seen driving the tractor, spraying or pruning back the vines. West Street vineyard is a family concern.
