Wonderful Welsh Wine Adventure 23 May 2015

Celebrate Welsh Wine Week with Food Adventure! We’re festive folks, so – in the spirit of Welsh Wine Week – we’re hosting a vineyard tour at two of our favourite vineyards; near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire. Not only will you enjoy a tour of the two vineyards, but you will also have a tour of Wales’ First commercial winery and a wonderful Welsh wine tasting!

Welsh wines are finally coming into their own; Wales is fast developing a reputation for wines of excellent quality. Join us on a Wine Adventure to discover and taste award winning Welsh wine.

On our Adventure, you will visit 2 vineyards and sample at least 10 different wines which will include sparkling, white and red.

First we will visit Ancre Hill Estates, a family run nine-acre, biodynamic, multi-award winning vineyard. They have just completed building their own winery; the first commercial winery in Wales. You will have a tour with the owners of the vineyard, learn about their growing and production methods and taste at least 6 of their beautiful wines. After our visit to Ancre Hill, we will head to White Castle Vineyard . Here, you will enjoy a tour of the vineyard and learn all about the varieties planted. After the tour, sit back, relax , and enjoy a tutored tasting of their sparkling and still wine whilst feasting on a sumptuous lunch featuring the finest Welsh produce prepared by the award winning Plant2plate.
