Melbury Vale Vineyard lies 1.5 miles south of Shaftesbury just off the A350. The vineyard was planted in 2006 and, with award-winning wines produced from 2010, it was decided to create our own production facility at the vineyard. The winery has been in production since 2013 and now receives many visitors each year to learn about growing grapes, making wine and, of course, tasting! Many of our tours include a lunch or cream tea – all using locally-sourced ingredients.
Scheduled public tours take place on Fridays and Saturdays from February until October. Private tours can be arranged for groups at other times.
On site, we sell still wines, sparkling wines, brandy, liqueurs and cider. Opening hours: Friday & Saturday 11.30 – 18.00. Extra opening for English Wine Week and Xmas shopping.
