Wine Tastings

We welcome everyone to visit HolyVale Vineyard and Winery. Open March until the end of October, Monday to Friday 12:30 – 16:30. Evenings and weekends are by appointment only.

For Wine Tastings, the visit begins with a  short tour of the vineyards and a brief introduction to viticulture at HolyVale from Robert Francis the proprietor and wine maker. The tour continues into the tasting room which overlooks the winery, here Robert explains the process of making the wine alongside the tasting.

The tasting itself includes five wines carefully selected by Robert which are made up of his own HolyVale wines and a couple of Roberts favourite wines from the rest of the world. At the end of the tasting you are encouraged to enjoy a 6th glass of your choice from the wines that have been tasted. Each wine is matched with a canapé providing a perfect start to the evening.

The Wine Shop

At the end of the tasting you are encouraged to visit the shop where you can purchase the wines you taste or place an order for delivery on the mainland once you return home. The shop offers both the HolyVale wines and Roberts recommended wines from the rest of the world!

Tastings are £18.50 per person. To book please contact the Star Castle and they will advise of the next available day and time. Please call on 01720 422317 or email
