The Holy Vale Vineyard, the perfect setting for a sumptuous ‘one mile’ lobster lunch.
It’s hard to imagine a more picturesque, alfresco lunch venue or a more locally sourced menu than the one that will be served at the Star Castle’s HolyVale vineyard on the Isles of Scilly this year. Described by esteemed wine expert, Michael Broadbent, as ‘one of the most beautiful vineyard settings in the world’, this picture perfect winery bottled its first vintage of excellent wines in 2015 and this year it will be continuing to serve the delicious lobster lunch, made up of ingredients, all sourced no more than a mile away. Visitors to the vineyard will be able to enjoy a glass of fine wine produced just an arms stretch away, a plate of fresh lobster, collected that very morning from St Mary’s harbour and a handful of new potatoes and rocket salad grown in the kitchen garden of the nearby Star Castle Hotel.
The vineyard and it’s al-fresco eatery are the latest attractions for visitors to the beautiful Isles of Scilly, who are welcome to visit free of charge or to attend an afternoon or evening wine tasting hosted by vineyard owner and connoisseur, Robert Francis, at £18.50 per person, including five wines and complementing tapas. Lobster lunch and a glass of HolyVale wine will cost £26.50. To book, call 01720 422317 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
