Visit the Hencote Estate & Vineyard in Shrewsbury on Saturday 28th April!
We have so many new and exciting developments to announce this year. To share them with you, we will be opening the Hencote Estate & Vineyard in Shrewsbury on Saturday 28th April and every Saturday after for an afternoon of vineyard tours, wine tasting, live music and hot food.
Welcoming you to the Hencote Estate & Vineyard
After a cold, wet winter and the Beast from the East bringing surprising March snows, we’re now hoping for a good run of warm weather to herald the beginning of new life on the vineyard.
2018 is shaping up to be a defining year for Hencote. Having taken our first harvest last October (from which we hope to have our first wine available soon, watch this space!), we are now looking to expand production tenfold in 2018 to upwards of 30,000 bottles.
At the same time construction of our new winery, restaurant and wine bar began onsite in March. In just a few months’ time, we will be proud to say we’ll be producing Premium Shropshire Wine in our state-of-the-art winery and serving local produce and English wines in our new restaurant.
Until then, we will be opening the Estate to the public every Saturday from the 28th April so that everyone can learn more about the work taking place throughout the year and enjoy the spectacular views over Shrewsbury from our marquee and veranda.
Saturdays at Hencote
From 12pm every Saturday until late, the Hencote Estate will be open to all. We will be running tours of our commercial vineyard followed by wine tasting of five English wines, which very soon will include our own. Relax and stay the entire afternoon in our marquee and covered veranda as we’ll be serving a hot lunch, providing a licensed alcohol bar and live music.
Why not bring your kids to meet our farm animals? In our new petting zoo they will get to meet our miniature donkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens.
We hope to see you there!
