Sedlescombe is England’s oldest organic wine estate comprising 22 acres of organically certified vineyards. It is one of the main tourist attractions in the ‘1066 Country’ region in and around Hastings, attracting approximately 5,000 visitors per year to its Vineyard & Woodland Nature Trail.
After more than 35 years of pioneering award-winning organic wine production the previous owners decided it was time for a change, so they sold the Vineyard to local couple, Sophie and Kieran Balmer, who were excited to invest in an establish, independent business.
The new owners have totally transformed the Vineyard shop and tasting room with a stunning combination of steel and glass incorporated across the whole building design. The enormous pair of radius head door screens provide a magnificent feature both internally and externally and are in keeping with the natural surroundings, providing a stunning backdrop to the shop. Inside there are further Clement EB24 door screens and doors which are used to beautifully partition rooms and allow light to flow through the building.
The owners are delighted. As Sophie Balmer commented: “The dark metal frames of our new Clement steel windows and screens, which were recently installed at the newly refurbished shop and tasting room, bring the premises up to date while keeping some of the original charm. We are thrilled with how much natural light floods in through the windows and the way that the sky and trees are reflected in the glass making the building blend in as part of this historic landscape.
