Yorkshire Heart Vineyard & Brewery

Yorkshire Heart Vineyard & Brewery


Welcome to Yorkshire Heart an award winning family run Vineyard & Brewery based in Nun Monkton, a picturesque village between Harrogate & York along the A59.

Here at Yorkshire Heart our hard working team are focused on producing award winning fine English wines from grape to glass in our Vineyard & Winery as well as a fantastic range of quality easy drinking craft beers from the heart in cask and bottles at our modern micro-brewery, we believe in representing the true taste of Yorkshire!
Our team are so proud of the Vineyard & Brewery as it is fast becoming recognised as one of Yorkshire's finest drink producers & a top visitor attraction.

We welcome visitors to the vineyard for tours & tastings, meetings, parties & weddings as well as camping & caravan stays, our knowledgeable team work extremely hard to ensure that everyone who comes along has a fantastic time and we find our customers thrive from our passion for the beauty that we are so lucky to work within every day,
2017 sees plans for us to build our brand new visitor centre at the vineyard with café & shop so we can have even more people come along and visit us!

Our award winning wines are produced from grapes grown in our Vineyard at Nun Monkton, York, handpicked by our dedicated team of helpers and processed in our very own modern winery. Winemaker Gillian carefully monitors the wines during the 12 month fermentation/maturation period. All wines are stabilized before filtering, bottling, labelling and packaging in house. Our Sparkling wines are the only sparkling fully produced from grape to glass in Yorkshire by means of the traditional Champagne method of 2nd fermentation. We are immensely proud of a business that creates fine artisan Yorkshire products by our very hard working team.

The brewery is based at Carlton Farm just a hop and a skip away from the vineyard still located in the beautiful village of Nun Monkton. We are a family run business with son Tim taking charge of the brewery as Head Brewer, he runs the brewery & completes every step of the brewing process from start to finish including the bottling, casking and distribution with his small team.
We are passionate about producing honest, quality easy drinking craft beers to the highest possible standards which is why all of our beers are brewed on site using only top quality malts and hops from reputable suppliers, and water from our own natural spring which helps give our beers their unique Yorkshire taste, even our beer bottles are made in Yorkshire!
