Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink
This year Welsh Wine Week runs from Sat. 25th May until Sun. 2nd June.
It is an exciting time for Welsh vineyards with our wines now being accepted as good in their own right and able to stand up against the rest of the world. The newly formed Welsh Vineyards Association will be doing their best to promote these wines during Welsh Wine Week. Many of the Welsh vineyards will be opening to the public and offering vineyard tours and tastings of their wines.
Parva Farm Vineyard at Tintern in the Wye Valley will be open every day from 11.30a.m. until 6.00p.m. for visitors to have a free vineyard tour and learn how grapes are grown to make Welsh wine in this beautiful area. The tour can be followed by free wine tastings in the Farm shop.
Being specially released for Welsh Wine Week is “Tintern Parva Bacchus 2011”. Bacchus is a dry white wine and has proved to be extremely popular. The 2011 wine has won a silver award in the English & Welsh Wine of the Year competition and just recently was given a commended award in the International Wine Challenge- a world wide competition.
Colin Dudley, who owns Parva Farm Vineyard with his wife Judith said “Welsh vineyards are really coming into their own. We would love to have as many visitors as possible during Welsh Wine Week so they can taste our wines but if they cannot make it then, they can visit any time and we will be happy to give them a tasting of some of Wales best wines.”
Parva Farm Vineyard is normally open 11.30a.m.-5.30p.m. every day except Wednesdays. Colin & Judith can be contacted on 01291 689636 or email@example.com www.parvafarm.com facebook “Parva Farm Vineyard
