This little vineyard is a great place to visit, we saw a video on the vineyard explaining the wine making procedure, followed by a tour. There is also a shop to purchase the products, with a chance to taste the wine and local mermaid gin....More

This is one of the oldest vineyards in the UK and has a great exhibition and allows you to walk around the wine making process which is fascinating. In my opinion what lets it down is the wine - the vines are old varieties and...More

A bit run down. Not a lot to see inside although there is an interesting video. Wine is about £12 a bottle. The walk around the vineyard isn't that big. Probably better when the grapes are growingMore

Hello David Thank you for your review although your comments are disappointing. Not really sure what you expected. It sounds as if you visited just after the main grape picking was completed which is hardly our fault. The winery contains equipment for wine making and...More

Hello Philip Thank you for your review but frankly it is rather unfair . Rosemary Vineyard is essentially a farm that grows grapes with a winery to make wine. The buildings are quite old and the room ,where we host our coach guests, is a...More
