Review: We welcomed Dining Devon to the vines!

Dining Devon join us in the vines

The lovely Lauren Heath and her family joined us in the vines to experience our vineyard tour and new kitchen.

Back in the September sunshine, we welcomed Lauren from Dining Devon to the vines for a tour with our wine wizard Tom and lunch in our newly opened kitchen. Dining Devon are a fantastic group of foodies, sharing the tasty delights from across the county as well as giving honest reviews along the way. Lauren has been a big advocate for English wine on their blog and across social media this past year, creating a wonderful map of all the vineyards across Devon. So we were delighted to hear she wanted to visit our new home.

Some of Laurens very kind words:

“The menu is a good manageable size with some very tasty options – cheese and charcuterie boards, open sandwiches (incl. vegan), kids options and sweet treats. More importantly – there is wine!… and all the alcoholic and soft drinks are from Devon – I just think that’s amazing!”

“So we had to dive into their ‘winemakers platter’ – a lovely array of Devon charcuterie and Devon cheeses (Sharpham brie, Ticklemore’s Devon blue and Quickes mature cheddar), cornish sea salt crackers, grapes, olives and feta stuffed red peppers. At first I thought this was a bit petite for two, but it was deceiving and really filling once you’d worked your way around combining various slices, crackers and nibbles together – it was absolutely delightful.”

“The families passion is clear, in the café and when they talk about the vines and the new winery. I think they have done a tremendous job, and wish them the best of luck as their venture matures.”
