Summer visiting has started again for 2018. We are open Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday weekends right through the summer, 11am-5.30pm. Taste our dry white wines for free and walk the vines with us. (NB But sorry, we are closing at 2.30 pm on Fri 6th Jul and closed Sat 25 and Sun 26 Aug for a family event, open 24th and 27th Aug)
Other times visits welcome by appointment. The vineyard is at its best from Apr to Sept, although we can accommodate other times. Before May the vines are dormant, though you can learn about winter pruning work which will be in progress until mid April.
We sell only our own crisp, dry white wines, made from grapes grown here. Details of our current releases here>> . This is a very peaceful, uncommercial spot. No shop, just our cellar door and a tent to taste under in front of the farmhouse and next to the vineyard. There is a narrow access lane, arched over with trees at the end, that ends in front of the house. Plenty of space to park and turn once you get here.
You can buy our wines at the vineyard by the case, 6-pack, presentation 3-pack, bottle or glass. Our wines are single-vineyard still, dry whites. Case prices are on our Shop/ Wines>> page. Bottle prices at the vineyard are £12 - £15, with reductions if you buy 3 or 6. We take credit cards and Contactless as well as cash and cheques.
For group visits of more than 6 we ask for a contribution of £10 per person, which covers a full tasting of our current releases (normally 4 x 50ml tastings), talk and tour of the vineyard guided in person by Iain or Jane. A group visit normally lasts one and a half to two hours.
You can buy our tour and tasting vouchers online. They cover a tour and full tutored tasting, personally-conducted by Iain or Jane, and include 3 bottles for your recipient(s) to choose and take home with them. These vouchers make memorable gifts (see what visitors have said in our Tripadvisor and Facebook reviews, links on the left). We email the voucher to you so it’s a good last-minute solution. Tasting and tour last about one and a half hours and visitors are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy afterwards.

Or picnic in the vines? If the weather’s nice, how about buying a picnic lunch at Blackmore Farm Shop and eating it among our vines with a cold bottle of Oatley? We can lend you glasses and a rug or set out chairs and tables for you. In summer we keep café tables under the trees (below left) or you can eat at the tables under our awning (above).
