Saturdays at Hencote

From Saturday 28th April and for every Saturday after we will be opening Hencote for an afternoon of vineyard tours, wine tasting, live music and hot food sourced from local producers!

After the success of our garden party last year, we have decided to introduce our Saturdays at Hencote from the 28th April. Come join us from 12pm until late to enjoy guided vineyard tours, drinks on the veranda overlooking spectacular views of Shrewsbury and live entertainment from local artists.

Vineyard Tours

Come on a Hencote Vineyard Tour and experience the changes taking place in the vineyard throughout the growing season.

From budburst in late-April, watch how new life begins as the vines awaken from winter dormancy. As the year progresses the vineyard will undergo dramatic changes, first growing large canopies, producing tiny flowers that then transform and ripen into the grapes that produce our wine.

Guests on our tours will be guided around the vineyard by our manager Mark, who will explain about the vines planted at Hencote, the range of wines we produce and the daily life of a vine-grower throughout the year in cool climate England.

Wine Tasting

After the tour you will be invited to a tutored wine tasting of five English wines from select vineyards across the country. You will learn more about the styles of wines our country produces, from fresh, aromatic whites to structured, elegant sparkling wines that rival the best of Champagne.

Every Saturday we will be changing the wines offered in our tasting to reflect the diversity of what can be produced on our shores and very soon we’ll be excited to include our very first vintage release as well.

We will be running two vineyard tour & tastings every Saturday at 2pm and 4pm. Be sure to book your spot as places are limited!


Entertainment & Amenities       

As well as our vineyard tours we will be providing live music, a seasonally-flavoured lunch and licensed bar in our marquee and veranda.

As you relax on the veranda after having enjoyed a lunch prepared from locally-sourced produce, mellow jazz and soul singers will provide the perfect backdrop to unwind and enjoy the spectacular views across the Shropshire hills.

Saturdays at Hencote is the perfect Saturday for families, groups and couples.
