Believed by some to be a site with Roman links and probably the vineyard for Tintern Abbey, Parva Farm is certainly Wales' oldest vineyard of the modern era. Colin and Judith Dudley bought it in the mid-1990s and set about modernising the vineyard and the wines on offer. Currently they grow 17 varieties on their 2.5 acre site, alongside their herds of sheep, pedigree Hereford cattle and horses.

Rosé and white still and sparkling wines are produced, along with a fruit wine – Seyval with summer fruits – and a spicy Welsh mead, with the Dudley's own honey.

Visitors can take either a self-guided tour or opt for a guided tour Thursday early evening during the summer. There are also gardens and a picnic area with views over the Wye Valley.

Over to Judith:

"Parva Farm is set in a beautiful spot overlooking Tintern and the River Wye. The oldest vines – planted in 1979 – produce high quality wines which may be tasted and purchased in our farm shop."
