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.”
