This English red wine is smooth and refined. Made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes grown at the Huxbear vineyard, it has aromas of blackberries, violets, and liquorice. A touch of vanilla and clove comes from the time spent in oak. It is unfiltered, medium bodied with an expressive palate.

All the wines in the Huxbear range are named after mythological bears. In Greek mythology Arcas was the son of Zeus and Callisto. To prevent Arcas from killing his mother (she was a bear, but he didn't recognise her), Zeus turned Arcas into a bear and put him into the stars. Callisto is Ursa Minor and Arcas is Ursa Major, The Great Bear, who now keeps watch over the Huxbear Vineyard.

More Information


Pinot Noir

When made well, Pinot Noir shines. When young it has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

As the wine ages, it will develop complexity and mystery. It has the capacity to become a gamey style of wine. It will show notes of autumn, truffles and mushrooms, especially when originating from the top vineyards of Burgundy. 


Ben Hulland, Huxbear Vineyard

Lucy and Ben started their vineyard from scratch following an idea inspired by a (possibly over-enthusiastic) wine tasting session. They sold up everything and moved to Brighton so that Ben could study winemaking at Plumpton College. After qualifying they found the perfect site in 2007 at Huxbear Farm near Chudleigh in Devon. The south-east facing slope offers ideal protection from late frosts.


Devon, England

Devon's vineyards are situatued in the valleys and lowlands of south and east Devon. Mostly close to the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart.

The growing season is long, with sun and heat starting earlier and lasting longer than in many other English counties. This gives the grapes more time to ripen and more time to hang.
