As we sadly enter another lockdown we are optimistically planning an exciting Tour, Tasting and Event programme for 2021.  We hope to be able to open from April/May with dates for bookings available in March – we await the latest Government guidelines.     In addition to our previous popular guided Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting, we will be offering delicious local food platters, vineyard picnics, self-guided trails and Friday evening wanders amongst the vines with sparkling wine glass in hand followed up by a fantastic meal supplied by a selection of local restaurants.    Fingers crossed and we look forward to seeing you here in 2021!

In the meantime, there are a lot of local restaurants, cafe’s and pubs offering Take-Away menus during lock-down. Please support them – the choice and quality of food on offer is amazing.  So have a break from cooking and treat yourself to a Take-Away.  We’ve compiled a list which we constantly update.
