Welsh Red Wine Varieties

One of the most ancient and noble of all grape varieties. It is the classic grape for red Burgundy but is also an important element of sparkling wines.

One of the new generation varieties bred for quality it will produce a medium bodied wine with excellent fruit and tanning balance.

Produces wines with very good colour and style and overtones of classic red varieties.

Welsh White Wine Varieties

Considered similar to Sauvignon Blanc in character

Seyval Blanc 
Is well suited to oak aging and used for still or sparkling wines. Single varietal wines offer crisp acidity, with quite neutral flavours.

A small berried and intensely aromatic variety.

Book Tour

We discovered White Castle Vineyard while driving to visit the nearby White Castle on a weekend excursion from the Cotswolds. The vineyard is not large. Think quality over quantity. I enjoyed the vineyard tour, wine tasting, and talking with Rob more than I did visiting the White Castle (which was pretty cool to visit).

The wine was good. I definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area. Make it a stop on your Welsh wine visit.

Rob also recommended the nearby 1861 restaurant. His taste in wine seems to be as good as his taste in restaurants.

I just wanted to say yet again thank you so much for a wonderful tour. The delegates loved it and those that couldn’t make it were very envious from the feedback those that attended gave back that evening.

Your enthusiasm for what you do and the area really added to the day, and especially the theme of promoting business in Abergavenny, which was fantastic. Thank you for taking the time out to host us and for your warm hospitality.

As I say, I’ll be back soon no doubt for some more tasting / buying but if you do have any events you’d like me to include on the website, do let me know.

Many thanks again,


Hi Robb

Firstly I must thank both you and your wife for a wonderful visit on Sunday. What a lovely story behind the setting up of the vineyard and lovely wines you produce as well.

Everyone enjoyed the visit tremendously.

Kind regards & best wishes
