You do not have to travel to France to visit picturesque vineyards and quaff delectable wine! Dotted all over Wales are over 15 vineyards producing world class red, rose, white as well as sparkling wine.
More than 20 different grape varieties are grown in vineyards across Wales. You can find well know wine varietals like pinot noir which is a popular still wine and used for making Champagne and sparkling wine. But you can also find lesser known varietals that make delicious wine like Muller Thurgan, Seyval Blanc and Regent.
To celebrate Welsh Wine Week, Food Adventure, who specialise in boutique food and drink tours and experiences, have organised a very special wine tour on the 23rd of May in Monmouthshire.
Carol Adams, Director of Food Adventure said “Wales produces some world class award winning wine. Sometimes, we don’t know and appreciate what is right on our doorstep so we have organised a special wine tour. We will visit 2 award winning vineyards, a winery and have a fabulous lunch featuring the best local produce”.
Richard Morris owner of Ancre Hill Vineyard who will be visited on the tour said “We have a great day planned with Food Adventure and look forward to giving a tour of our vineyard. We have also just built a winery winery, the first in Wales! The guests will also have a tutored tasting of 7 of our wines. What a way to kick off Welsh Wine Week”.
