Just a quick information update from the Pebblebed Vineyards!
In the Vineyard
Its a very nervous time of year for us with the recent late frosts causing some damage to our early Pinot vines - however the other later varieties seem to have survived so now praying for mild weather! The new winery is coming on well and we are working hard to prepare the Farm for the first tours in May.
These start on Thursday 24th May and run most Thursdays at 4:30pm and Saturday mornings at 11am through to the end of September. The tours are around our Clyst St George Vineyard and this year tastings will be in the new winery at the vineyard. Our Tapas lunches will be at our Topsham wine cellar. Further details are on the website.
We now have an online booking system for the Tours - so to book please go to the website and tours page. Vouchers for the tours and tastings can be bought online.
