Within a mile of the River Severn lies Astley Vineyard, the home of Jonty Daniels and Janet Baldwin's bijou operation. Originally planted in the pioneering 1970s, at the time it was the most northerly English vineyard. When Jonty and Janet took over in the early 1990s, they continued their predecessors experimental instincts, always striving to produce wines that speak of both site and the vintage.

A visit allows a chance to taste and wander round the vineyards. Their wines are not available in supermarkets – they only have five acres – but are well worth seeking out.

Eco-friendly initiatives

  • minimal use of sprays
  • prunings are cultivated back into the soil rather than burnt

Don't miss

Astley Late Harvest – only produced in exceptional harvests, the most recent was 2008. A frequent trophy winner, this is made from early maturing Seigerrebe and trellised for extremely low yields. Late harvest plus such concentration gives a wine with delightful, honeyed tropical fruit, a light touch on the finish, and a great partner for blue cheese.
