Set high above Shrewsbury and the Shropshire countryside, the Hencote estate is a reminder of what England, at its best, has to offer. An insistence on authenticity and a keen eye for detail has driven the creation of this unique English experience that comprises wine tasting, vineyard tours, a hilltop restaurant and luxury accommodation.
Stroll through rows and rows of maturing grape vines, learn about the marriage of modern thinking and traditional techniques that encapsulates Hencote’s singular approach to winemaking, and enjoy bold and exciting dishes from around the world – all within the grounds of the private Hencote estate.
Luxury onsite accommodation is available in the shape of the Grange, an elegantly restored Georgian farmhouse, and the glamping village, a series of lavishly furnished luxury lodges. Each residence is outfitted with its own hot tub - the perfect vantage point from which to take in the view of the Shrewsbury skyline and the vibrant vineyard that sits below.
At ‘The View’, our brand new restaurant overlooking Shrewsbury and the Hencote vineyard, you can eat and drink with loved ones to your heart’s content. Sit at the chef’s table and savour strikingly delicious meals prepared from the finest ingredients. Alternatively, take a seat at our wine bar and enjoy one of our exquisite wines while looking directly into the very winery that produced it.
At Hencote, our values start with our vineyard. Our team carefully nurtures each individual vine using traditional practices. We welcome you to walk through the vines and witness first-hand how we produce quality English wine in Shropshire. Each visit to the vineyard is unique. As the seasons change, observe the stages of growth and learn about the work that goes into creating sparkling rosés, rich reds and crisp whites.
Visit our shop page to order wine online, book a guided vineyard tour or participate in our vine adoption service. If you’d like to learn a bit more about the work that goes into producing our wine, you can visit the Hencote estate for a guided tour or you can ‘adopt a vine’ and experience the pleasure of overseeing your very own part of the Hencote vineyard.
With picturesque views of the Shropshire countryside, dining facilities and onsite accommodation, Hencote is an event space that has it all. Hencote can cater for weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, creating a bespoke experience that centres on the guest’s needs and requirements. Be sure to keep an eye out for the calendar of events occurring at Hencote and in neighbouring Shrewsbury.
We had a great day. Could not fault anything. Lovely wines, delicious food and brilliant hosts. We are lucky to have this facility on our doorstep and can't wait until the restaurant opens. Highly recommended.
“I have just returned home after a wonderful stay at Hencote.”
From the moment I reached Hencote with its beautiful surroundings I began to relax. Hencote itself is pure luxury. The sumptuous bed, free standing bath and gorgeous fluffy towels were my personal favourites!
