Irma and Rodger Cook, Owners of Sedlescombe Organic Vineyard

Roy and Irma, like their vineyard, are disarmingly charming. As you drop down into the valley where their Organic Vineyard is nestled, you immediately relax.  This place is a beautiful, rustic, treasure trove.  Roy and Irma gained experience making wine on the continent and 30 years ago set up this magical place. As soon as you come here you will want to keep coming back.

When I met these guys I thought “they are living the dream”. They have actually managed to get the good life. As soon as you start talking to them you can see that they care about the environment and have passion for the wines they make. At every turn is a new country wine. This unassuming place has been making artisan wines since before the rest of us knew that was a cool thing to do.
