Designcubed with Martin Swatton Design:
Rathfinny winery is a bespoke building that combines all elements of winery production with a mixture of tasting, hospitality & staff facilities. The building nestles within the lee of the Cuckmere valley (East Sussex) and is overlooked by the South Down’s Way. A curving roof profile planted with a local mixture of down-land wildflowers creates a new, elevated meadow helping the building blend into the surrounding farmland.
Over the next seven years Rathfinny estate plan to plant out 350 acres of vines. By 2020, they anticipate the vineyard to produce nearly a million bottles of Sussex sparkling wine per annum.
