Enjoy an idyllic day with spectacular views of the East Devon countryside and explore the beautiful Castlewood Vineyard. Afterwards, join us at River Cottage HQ for a delicious two-course lunch in Hugh’s famous farmhouse.
What better way to celebrate the River Cottage ethos than to experience the spectacular countryside in which your food and drink is grown! Castlewood Vineyard is a ‘boutique’ vineyard nestled beneath the ancient hill fort of Musbury Castle.
We'll kick off with a short walk to the vineyard, followed by a tour through the vines and then a relaxed tasting session.
You’ll meet passionate vintner Rob Corbett who meticulously tends to every vine throughout the growing season. Rob will take you on a tour of the vines and tasting room and explain the differences between the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes that represent three quarters of his vineyard, along with the varietals that represent the rest.
