An Baile Rua, the red farmstead, is where Simon Neville has farmed for some forty years. Five miles north of Wexford town - a stone’s throw from the Blackwater - his land sits on the Seafield series derived from sand & mudstones – its sandy, course texture makes for a challenging terroir in drier years and fruitier, more floral spirit.
