Go wine tasting at Ryedale Vineyards
Sample wines from England’s most northerly vineyard.
Set in the rolling Yorkshire Wolds, Ryedale Vineyard’s sunny setting is the key to producing England’s most northerly wines. This independent, family-run vineyard has been in operation since 2009, using grapes from the aptly named Paradise Farm.
Owners, the Fletcher family took over the vineyard in 2016 and keep it running as a true family business. All the family chip in to help look after the 10,000 vines. All of the work on the vineyard is done by hand including pruning, harvesting, bottling and labelling.
Take a vineyard tour and then bed down at Farfield Farmhouse, a Grade 2 listed building, where hearty breakfasts and wine tasting are the order of the day. Although not necessarily straight after each other.
