Rathfinny Wine Estate’s aim to become the UK’s largest producer of ‘English Sparkling Wine’ is progressing well and is moving on to the next phase of buildings to support that aim. Following the great success of the main winery building I was delighted to be asked to provide the design for two new buildings totalling 5300sqm. The new buildings are based on a standard agricultural portal frame structure but I have adapted the design to meet the needs of the function yet sit neatly within the sensitive nature of the landscape. South Downs National Park planning committee unanimously supported the scheme and planning consent has been given.
