Adrian Pike took over the Westwell estate from previous owner John Rowe in 2016. Westwell’s vineyards are located on a south facing slope on chalk soil in the Kent Downs, planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Ortega.

Adrian gained experience at Davenport Vineyards, and when he left to take over Westwell in 2016 he convinced Marcus Goodwin (with 20 years in vineyard management) to join him. 

Prior to working in wine Adrian made his name in the independent music sector and has brought some of that spirit along with him into the English wine world. 

Combined with a pragmatic approach to vineyard management and what is truly an exceptional vineyard site, we are thrilled to see the continuous developments occurring at Westwell.
