Vineyard Tour and Lunch



From £155.00 Per Person

Each Wednesday between May and September we host a Vineyard tour for our resident guests and special lunch packages for non-resident guests.

When Michael first visited Lympstone Manor, he was not only inspired by the potential to transform a dilapidated mansion into what has become a luxury country house hotel and highly acclaimed Lympstone Manor, he was equally excited at the prospect of planting a vineyard on the southwest-facing parkland overlooking the beautiful Exe estuary.

Vineyards, like dreams, take time to be transformed into reality, for roots to penetrate deep down and become established, for grapes to ripen, for wines to be made, for the secondary fermentation, and for the complexity to develop that only comes from lengthy maturation on the lees in the bottle.

In May 2018, 17, 500 vines were planted to produce high-quality English sparkling wine utilising the varietals of Champagne: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. The first harvest was in September, 2020. After an exceptionally warm growing season, the harvest, though small from young vines, was of very high quality. The Triassic Pinot Noir 2020 has won gold at this year’s International Wine Challenge as well as a bronze award in the International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Over the summer season we would like to welcome and share with you, our plans for the Vineyard, the progress thus far, the exciting release of the Lympstone Manor Cuvée and our first still rosé wine produced from our single vineyard.

Tours have now closed for the season but will resume in 2024.
