Local wine tasting opportunity

Created on 10/06/2021 @ 11:11


Kerry Vale Vineyard, near Montgomery, is hosting a ‘Meet the Producer’ event next week to celebrate English Wine Week.

Located just across the border, Kerry Vale Vineyard will open its doors during from 10am-4pm from June 22-25 with local residents and customers invited to ‘Meet the producer’ and sample the vineyard’s award winning wine.

Owner Russell Cooke said: “By inviting people to explore the vineyard, we hope they will gain an understanding of the wine growing process and gain a deeper appreciation for the world of wine.

“We love to share the vineyard with our guests and, during their visit, they will be welcome to explore at leisure, take in the stunning countryside and experience the beautiful sense of space and tranquillity that the vineyard offers. We’re confident they will love it like we do!”

Visitors will be welcomed with a free self-guided tour and invited to try three wines in the café for just £5 per person. Customers must be 18 or older to sample the wine. The event also provides an opportunity to meet the vineyard experts who will be on hand to take questions.

Once part of the ancient Roman site of Pentreheyling Fort, the vineyard has an interesting past which is revealed on information boards.

The vineyard makes a selection of white, rose and red still and sparkling wines, which have won a host of national and international awards.

“Our meet the producer week aims to not only educate people about English wine, but also to encourage them to buy locally. This is a philosophy we promote in our vineyard café with our fresh homemade produce.”

Kerry Vale Vineyard is a member of MWT Cymru, which represent more than 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Powys, Ceredigion and the Meirionnydd region of Gwynedd.
