Parva Farm Vineyard– owned by Colin & Judith Dudley- is probably the oldest commercial Welsh vineyard having plantings dating back to 1979.  The grapes from their 31 year old Bacchus vines are made into quality wine which is very popular with customers and was obviously appreciated by the judges of this year’s competition.  Bacchus is a German grape variety which seems to produce excellent wine when grown in Britain- it is aromatic with hints of elderflower, good fresh fruity flavour and a long finish.

The vineyard is situated in the beautiful Wye Valley overlooking the village of Tintern and its historic Abbey and is open to visitors all year.
