A red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Pinot Noir is notoriously difficult to cultivate due to its exacting soil requirements and sensitivity to wind and frost. Few places in the world are able to grow Pinot Noir successfully and in most cases the grape is used as a base for sparkling wine. However, the exceptional quality and unrivalled sugar
content of Pinot Noir grapes grown on the Danbury Wine Estate means that award-winning still wines have been produced.
