“Good tour, generous with their tastings”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The guide who showed us around was very engaging and obviously very knowledgeable. After the tour there is an opportunity to taste the products talked about on the tour. I have been to a few other vineyards who only provide you with limited tastings of a few products, not at Rosemary Vineyards, you can taste most of their products and as many as you want to. Their shop is well stocked with their products.

“Overpriced food in cafe, unable to cater for large numbers”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This is a review of the cafe at Rosemary's Vineyard, were on a coach party. The driver rang ahead and asked if they could cope with a coach party of 37. They said yes but the cafe was woefully inadequate. Although the food was cooked fresh, they ran out of lettuce for the salad as well as ham for their ham sandwiches. Although members of our party liked the winery part of the visit, this is not the place to go if you are looking for lunch. The prices on the menu were in my opinion mortgage worthy with sandwiches at approx £5, although they discounted this slightly when they started to run out of ingredients.
They cafe was small and not capable of handling a coach party efficiently.

So glad we stopped here, we did the tour which was very interesting. The guide who showed us around had a great personality, made the tour interesting and funny, he also had a very good knowledge of all the products, we left with lots of wine and will be ordering on line as well!

“Take it for what it is a local winery”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

If you are driving around the Island it is nice to pop into these places to see what is on offer and some pop in's are better than others. The road leading to the Winery is full of potholes and you do need to take care and watch out for coaches. Once in the winery you are given a leaflet and told you can go around yourself. The staff were very friendly and helpful and offered us tastes of all of the wines and ciders. There was a video playing which was difficult to hear as the staff were labelling bottles. That said the liqueurs we tasted were gorgeous and as I said it was a nice place to pop into.
