Vineyard Tour and Tasting with Lunch for Two
Great Xmas Pressie
A very enjoyable experience. We've visited English vineyards before - this was definitely the best. The owner was very informative, both on the vineyard tour and during the wine tasting. Lunch was good and plentiful and served with two wines that we hadn't tasted previously. Altogether very enjoyable.

Old Walls Vineyard tour, Bishopsteignton
Excellent group tour by the owner himself - informative and detailed. The first part was outside, and covered everything from the history of the farm and vineyard, to how to start a vineyard, how to maintain the vines, what to expect, the different grape varieties, and a wander around the vines, on a hill overlooking the Teign Estuary. Part 2 was the wine-making process in the on-site winery, and tasting of six of the wines produced. This all took some 3.5 hours, but that time flew by. There followed a delicious lunch - a ploughman's for me - and went away with a complementary bottle of wine very happy.
Tip: arrange transport other than driving home if you intend on making the most of the wine!

We were bought this gift by our grandchildren. They couldn't have chosen better. We went to the Old Walls Vineyard, Bishopsteighton when we arrived they gave us coffee and took our order for lunch, then the tour followed and was so informative and Ken was just fantastic at explaining everything. At the end of the tour, which incorporated the vineyards and the making of the wine in the winery, we were given a fairly extensive wine tasting. We were then served with a fantastic ploughmans and cream tea, and sent home with a bottle of wine of our choice.
All the staff were very friendly and efficient. Many thanks.
