Vineyard Tour and Lunch
When Michael first visited Lympstone Manor, he was not only inspired by the potential to transform a dilapidated mansion into what has become a luxury country house hotel, he was equally excited at the prospect of planting a Vineyard on the southwest-facing parkland overlooking the beautiful Exe estuary.
In May 2018, 17, 500 vines were planted to produce high-quality English sparkling wine utilising the varietals of Champagne: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. The first harvest was in September, 2020 and after an exceptionally warm growing season, the harvest, though small from young vines, was of very high quality. Triassic Pinot Noir 2020, the first wine from the Lympstone Manor vineyard, has now been released and will be sampled on our Vineyard tour.
Join us over the summer months and we’ll share with you our plans for the Vineyard, the progress thus far and the upcoming excitement of serving our very own Lympstone Manor Cuvée. Each Wednesday between May and September we will be running an educational Vineyard tour with our Vineyard Manager followed by a guided tasting of our Triassic Pinot Noir, before finishing the experience with an indulgent 4 course lunch.
