The Romans, planted vines here in Bath dating back to the middle ages, there's still remnants in these fields of one of those vineyards.
Rainwater falling on the Carboniferous Limestone outcrop in the Mendip Hills, descends to great depths in the Radstock Basin where it becomes geothermally heated, before rising beneath Bath and breaking through the aquiclude formed by the Mesozoic rocks.
It is certainly rare in its geology with its geothermal underlay. Perhaps the Romans, had access to ancient insight about this Terroir, and the characteristics expressed in its vines, to produce a unique and exquisite taste, unlike anywhere in Europe…
Minerva is the Roman goddess of wisdom.
In Britain, Minerva was conflated with the local goddess Aquae Sulis, who was associated with medicine and fertility.

To mark the beginning of our journey, we crafted this short piece, we've called Minerva.
