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 at Renishaw gives you a fascinating insight into the running of the vineyard and the cycle of wine making. Kieron Atkinson, our award-winning winemaker, takes the tours around the vineyard which include sampling the superb, Gold Medal-winning still and sparkling wines we produce. Tours usually take place on a Sunday during the main open season, at noon and 2pm.


Tours last approximately an hour and a half, including wine tasting. Pre-booking is essential.
