We went with friends to visit Dedham Vale Winery; it was a perfect day and a perfect setting.
We parked up and was met by a very obliging lady who pointed us in the direction of a self-tour around the Vineyards. These are very informative with signs and pictures explaining about the grapes. We then sat outside overlooking a lovely lake and tasted several wines, which the lady explained in great detail. You could purchase the wines if you so wished, and also there was a shop which sold a variety off meat, cheeses, burgers, sausages etc. There was a nature walk that you could also go on, but work is being carried out there at the moment. But the Winery is in such a beautiful area, and it was lovely just to sit there and take in the view!

We visited on a a wet day but it did not spoil the experience. Lovely spot, which on a nice day would extend the length of the visit. Interesting to view different grapes and their history. A super tatsting where we were left to ourselves to tatse the wines, liquers and cider. Of course we bought lots. If i had to critisise it would be that we would have liked a longer conversation with the owner but that was probably our fault.

A unique place to visit in the Colchester area. Nothing better than sharing a bottle of their rose on a sunday afternoon surrounded by the tranquil countryside, i highly recommend a visit. ! and if you really do need to excersize you can walk through the vines and learn something about the grapes they grow to make their award winning wines.
