About Post House
The estate gets its name from the Raithby Post Office which occupied part of the main farmhouse during World War II and served the local Methodist missionary community. The original red post box, an artifact of days gone by, stands today at the entrance to the cellar and tasting room.
Post House wines are imbued with the rich history of letters, stamps and post boxes, which hark back to a bygone era. It is a fitting comparison because making wine, like writing and posting letters, requires the kind of care and attention that comes with a slower pace of life.
Some of our wines are named after famous postage stamps, such as the Penny Black, appropriate for the inky black colour of the wine. Other stamp-inspired wines include the Merry Widow, Missing Virgin, Golden Monkey and Treskilling Yellow.
Penny Black stamps are valuable not because of their rarity, but because they were the first self-adhesive postage stamps. The Missing Virgin refers to a printing error on a Virgin Island stamp, where the image of the virgin St Ursula was accidentally omitted.
whose father, Hermann, bought the farm in 1981, is Post House’s Cellar Master.
“Post House wines are perhaps the darkest and most textured wines to be found anywhere.” – Nick Gebers
