Just like another reviewer, my wife and I were bought a wine tasting experience as a gift and chose Wroxeter for its location.
First, with reference to another review, please bear in mind this is not the Napa or Loire valleys. It is a small family owned vineyard with an owner who has a passion for his work.
The day starts with a talk about the area and its history from the owner Martin, who guides visitors through the whole visit.
Martin takes visitors on a full tour of the compact vineyard giving informative and amusing talks along the way.
At the end of the tour is the wine tasting which again was very enjoyable, mixing with others on the tour and rating the wines. The wines are not 'top shelf' but they are pleasant, although as Martin himself said it is difficult to produce a good red in this country. Therefore only one red was on offer at the tasting, which wasn't too bad considering.
The meal provided was a simple salad with a layered cold meat pie. It was not top notch dining but was fine and combined with the wine and company was a fine end to the visit.
Please take the time to visit the vineyard if only to purchase some wines and help keep local craftspeople like Martin and his family in business.
