About the Tour Current 2020
Tours will start July 2020 but with smaller numbers no more than 12 or 14 and we may be running two consecutive tours on some Saturdays at 3pm and 5pm. We are not able to talk to a group in an enclosed space, such as the winery, so we will be making changes to the way we carry out the tour. One of the two wine makers will guide you around the vines in the vineyard and talk about the winery here. You will then be invited to visit the winery in the groups you arrived with. Wine tasting will be pre-poured and we will be utilising plant starch single use tasting glasses to avoid glass collection and washing. Picnic benches will be well separated; we do have plenty of space at the vineyard. We will include tasting notes rather than talk through the wine tasting as a group. You are of course welcome to linger in the vineyard after the tour; the horsebox bar will be available for drinks, nuts and crisps.
The vineyard can be uneven and the floor of the winery is cobbled stone. Please note due to the working environment, we cannot accommodate dogs or young children.
You will have the opportunity to purchase our wines direct from the winery. Taxis are available from Malton approximately six miles away should you not wish to drive.
"Brilliant....a wonderful, enterprising, successful, happy family business. Couldn't rate it more highly. A great interesting visit." - Mo
