Our tours start in the vineyard, bringing you up to date with the vines development since pruning in the winter. We also talk about the impact of any recent weather has had on the vines. We then move into the winery, to show you what is involved in making award winning wines. The tour concludes with a tasting of three of our wines. Each tour lasts about 1 hour, but do allow more time, to take in the views and enjoy the tasting.
Our vineyard benefits in may ways from the tors of Dartmoor. The moors act as a rain belt, reducing the amount of rain falling into the vineyard. The tors also reduce the wind, which would normally push away any heat accumulated amongst the vines.
The Devon climate is key to everything we do. The late “Indian summer” gives us the extra ripening we need, and the winters provide the cold temperatures to gently settle wine without wasting electricity to chill the wines.
