Vineyard Tour and Lunch
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, time for roots to penetrate deep down and become established, time for grapes to ripen, for wines to be made, for 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 produce high-quality English sparkling wine utilising the varietals of Champagne: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. Whilst the first significant harvest is unlikely to be before 2021, the Vineyard is ever changing and maturing, nutured by our Vineyard Manager James Matyear and his team.
Over the summer season we would like to welcome you and share with you, our plans for the Vineyard, the progress thus far and the exciting future of one day serving a Lympstone Manor Cuvée from our own grapes. Each Wednesday and Saturday between May and September we will be running Vineyard tours for our resident guests and for special lunch packages for our non-residents.
