The creation of Pookchurch Vineyard has been, and continues to be, the work of many.
The vineyard design, planting process, and management of the vines during the summer has been undertaken by Darcy, James, Chris and Joel at Vine Works Ltd, who have also embarked on the considerable job of erecting the trellising system. Land preparation and site management has been overseen by Matthew and Mandy at Complete Land Management (CLM).
Over 4 kilometres of Deer fencing and gates took some time and effort to complete, and much of it was put up by Tim Bennett Fencing. The drainage system for the lower fields amounted to 16 kilometres of trenching and pipes, and was installed by Graham from G&S Browns and designed by John Vince at Drainage and Groundwork.
Back in the winter, sympathetic tree trimming and thinning was performed by tree surgeon Kevin Rodgers and bridleway and access surfacing was done by R&B Construction, who are soon to start work on construction of the general purpose building.
