Christmas in the vines

Christmas - Madeleine

We are starting to get festive! Checkout what's happening in the vines this Christmas

Christmas 2022 is sneaking up on us! We are starting to catch the festive feeling in the vines with the smells of freshly cooked turkey starting to fill the kitchen and Christmas jumpers at the ready. We have lots planned throughout December including our new winemakers Christmas parties, the return of our festive roast on toast, local gift boxes and hampers as well as our Late night shopping events with live music.

Christmas food

Christmas in the kitchen

We’re well and truly getting the festive feeling in the kitchen! Our team has been busy creating this years festive menu, available from Wednesday 30th of November.

December see’s the return of our famous Christmas Roast on Toast – a delicious take on the Christmas dinner all loaded over a gorgeous slice of local sourdough. We can’t wait for the pigs in blankets! Another favourite is our Brussels, bacon and ricotta open sandwich, not forgetting the Christmas cake and other sweet treats that will be ready to tempt you through the festive season. You can see the full menu here and book a table to join us here.

Christmas - gift boxes

Christmas gift boxes + Hampers

Join us in our bottle and gift shop this December to browse the wonderful range of local produce. Sourced from all corners of Devon and ranging from gins, rums and whiskys to chocolate, fudge and other wonderful gifts (to name just a few items). There’s no doubt you’ll find the perfect bottle for that special person or even build your own hamper with your own unique selections. If you can’t make it to the shop this Christmas, fear not! We have a fantastic range of pre-assembled gift boxes available online, curated by our very own team to offer the perfect gift for your loved ones. Check out our range of online gift boxes here.

Christmas - late night

Late night shopping Events – Fri 2nd + 16th Dec

We are very excited for our Late Night Christmas Shopping evenings at the vineyard this December! Last years’ event was so lovely, we have made these evenings even more exciting than ever. Join us to browse our bottle and gift shop to find that perfect present for your loved ones. We will also be serving our Christmas platters and nibbles menu with live music from superb local musicians. The evenings are from 5-8pm full of festive cheer, mulled wine, fairy lights and candles!

Christmas - wine

Pick up your wine for Christmas

No Christmas dinner is complete without something lovely to drink with it. Whether you’re having Turkey and all the trimmings or something a little less traditional, a lovely chilled glass of wine is always a firm favourite for Christmas dinner. Our dry white, Madeleine Angevine is the perfect accompaniment to a succulent slice or two of Turkey whereas our Rondo rosé gives that extra bit of character to a cheeseboard in front of the fire. Pop in to the shop to ask our team for their recommendations, there’s really something for everyone, even if alcohol isn’t your thing.

Christmas - trees

Christmas trees

We will also see the return of our beautiful, locally sourced Christmas trees. Grown on a farm just 3 miles from the vineyard on the edge of Dartmoor and cut fresh to be at their best for longer. The first trees will be with us from Friday 2nd of December. Please contact us if you would like to pre-order your tree.
