Visited this Vineyard whilst on IOW for few days, the walk from main road is fairly steep but so worth it when you get to the top, views stunning & I believe cruise ships sailing across the Solent can be seen. We were warmly greeted by the owner Russell and enjoyed tasting different wines ranging from red through to their... More

My stay at the vineyard was amazing, I loved it. I stayed with my friend and the room was top quality, containing everything I needed! The vineyard its-self was amazing too, I can't wait to go again !

Popped into the shop for 10 minutes as had never tried English wine before and had seen signs for the vineyard. Had a warm welcome and sampled some wine (I highly recommend the cherry wine, of which I bought a bottle). It would be great to go back when the weather is warmer and wine is being produced.

We only had a quick visit with a coach party of 40 people so we were somewhat lost in the crowd.The very instructive talk of the wine making process from locally grown fruit vines was augmented with a taste of all varieties produced.After the talk opportunity to view wine in the process of production was possible, but we had to...

Popped out last weekend for a look around. New owners have re furbished and done quite a bit of work. Nice small cafe/deli with a nice selection of cakes and light bites. Wine that is made on site is on offer to taste along with some other tasty products that they make on site and are made by local producers.... More

We loved this vineyard and completely preferred this to Rosemary Vineyard which was larger and attracted coach parties. We took the self guided audio tour with tasting and would definitely recommend this. We enjoyed the wine and purchased a number of bottles to take away. For lunch we enjoyed the meze with a nice glass of wine on the terrace... More

We visited the vineyard with my South African inlaws (pops is a big wine buff), in the shop we were keen to taste (not quaff) wine from the vineyard with the intention of buying a bottle or two. The lady poured what can be described as a teaspoon of wine to taste (sniff was more realistic), I could not make... More

Davey, We are genuinely sorry you didn't enjoy your visit with us. We try very hard to make everybody feel they are our only customer and in most instances, we have been recognised for it. Having a tasting table in the shop is a challenging thing to manage when it gets busy. Our staff are trained to give samples of... More

Thank you, we are both really pleased you enjoyed your time here. It's so beautiful on a clear day, watching the cruise liners in the bay with a glass of wine in hand!! The live Sunday music adds a nice touch as well. Thanks again for making the effort to tell others. Russ & Sarah Adgestone Vineyard More

We had a wonderful welcome by Jill who was happy to let us try all the different wines that were made at the vineyard. Jill also explained about the new wine tours that they do - a must for the next time we visit the Isle of Wight.
