Woodchester Valley Vineyard

First planted by founder Fiona Shiner in 2007, this family-owned boutique vineyard situated in the Stroud Valleys has taken the wine-world by storm. With a strong team of wine experts on board, the vineyard now produces a variety of wines that can be enjoyed all year round, including the Gold medal award-winning white wine Bacchus, the award-winning Atcombe Red, a variety of rosé and sparkling wines.

Tasting notes: during English Wine Week, the vineyard has a host of extra events on top of the usual vineyard tours and wine tastings. We love the sound of the Cheese and Charcuterie and the Pizza and Pinot tastings events! Check out dates and booking info here

Three Choirs Vineyard

One of England’s oldest vineyards, Three Choirs in Gloucestershire was first planted in 1973 on an area of just ½ acre. Today, the vineyard encompasses 75 acres and produces 250 thousand bottles a year. Many of the wines are award-winning, including the first gold medal at Vinexpo in Bordeaux to be awarded to an English vineyard, and the producers are continually focusing on innovation and excellence in their wine.

Tasting notes: often cited as one of the top UK vineyard tours, the Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting Experience is back with new Covid guidelines in place. Or book a table at the Brasserie for dishes that complement the vineyard’s wines. For more info take a look here
