Renishaw Hall’s vineyard was planted by Alexandra Sitwell’s father, the late Sir Reresby in 1972. Up until 1986 it was certified the most northern vineyard in the world, 53 degrees 18 minutes north.
A vineyard tour gives you a fascinating insight into the running of the vineyard and the cycle of winemaking. Kieron Atkinson, our award-winning winemaker, takes the tours around the vineyard. This hour and a half tour includes the chance to sample the delicious, medal-winning still and sparkling wine we produce.
Why not visit our shop afterwards to purchase a bottle of Renishaw wine to enjoy at home or celebrate a special occasion?
Private tours for groups of 12 and over can be booked by contacting Kieron Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
