I have come here on several occasions, with my mum and also daughter and again with a good friend. The food is delicious, the surroundings are stunning, the price very reasonable. Looking forward to my next visit.

Nice half day out. Ken and his family are very welcoming and clearly very proud of their achievements, overcoming a lot of difficulties in setting up the vineyard in the last few years. The vineyard tour and talk is perhaps a bit too long and detailed but more than made up for by the excellent wine tasting following it and an even more excellent lunch after, including a cream tea!

I'm not a great fan of English wine, but their's is the best white and rose I've tasted in a long time; not so sure about the reds though.

Well worth it.

Given this day as a Birthday present. Had a really lovely relaxed and informative day. We learnt a lot and were well looked after by Ken and his team. After the wine tasting we were treated to a lovely ploughmans lunch and Devon cream tea. This is a 'must go' attraction.

My husband was given this tour for 2 as a special birthday present. It was an amazing day out.
We met at the vineyard in Bishopsteignton at 10.15 and were served coffee. (A group of 8 couples)Then Ken, the proprietor, took us all on a journey as to how he and his son set up the vineyard, and started producing wine on a small commercial scale. We went out to view the different vines, then went into the wine producing area, where Ken explained that process from gathering the grapes to the end product. We then tasted all the varieties they produce!
We then had a very good ploughmans or sandwich lunch followed by Devon scones, strawberry jam and of course clotted cream!
We all departed with a bottle of our choice. It was such an interesting day. Ken speaks so well, and everyone was so interested. I really do wish the family well, they certainly deserve it.
We have visited vineyards in Chile, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and of course France, but this was by far the most interesting.

We were treated to this experience as a gift and would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to do something different! The tour of the vineyard is very informative learning about the history of Old Walls Vineyard and whole wine process from selecting the vines, growing and harvesting the fruit. After a walk around the vines we learnt about the wine making process and tasted lots of wine!

The experience also included a lunch. We choose a ploughmans which was really tasty and a large portion! At the end of the tour we were able to choose a bottle of wine (from the ones we had tasted earlier) to take home - a lovely surprise. We also bought an extra bottle as it was delicious!
