The Vineyard

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

The brewery is based just a hop and a skip away from the vineyard with son Tim taking charge of the brewery, 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!
