Enjoy a guided tour of Wythall Estate’s Vineyard followed by a tutored wine tasting in the Manor house.
South Herefordshire has an excellent grape-growing environment, and the Wythall Estate near Ross-on-Wye provides a wonderful experience to understand more about the wine-making process and of course the growing and harvesting of these special vines.
Vineyard tours and tutored wine tastings take place on Saturdays throughout the year. Each tour is a maximum of 25 people and pre‑booking is required. Groups are welcome and group organisers should contact the estate by email to discuss available dates.
The Vineyard Tour
Arrive at 12.00 noon for a walking tour of the Vineyard with Frank. He will talk about the grape varieties grown at Wythall Estate, the pruning methods used and explain about the vine management from planting through to harvesting. Frank will also share his knowledge of growing, maintaining and harvesting the grape varieties chosen, all of which perfectly suit the English climate and are now producing Wythall’s unique and award‑winning wines.
Following the tour of the vineyard, owner Jamie McIntyre will welcome the group into the dining room at Wythall Manor. Guests will be able to taste all the wines currently available. After the tasting there will be an opportunity to purchase wine at a discounted price for cases of 6 bottles or more.
Cost: £20 pp
Group Tours booked for 25 people enjoy a 10% discount
