“We will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

We visited the Rosemary Vineyard for the tasting rather than the tour as, having both visited France, Germany and Italy we already know what a vineyard looks like!
The staff were friendly and welcoming. If anything the only problem I has was as I was driving my wife had to take over as chief taster! Didn't want to upset the very nice men and women of the IOW Police!
There is a wide variety of products on offer for all tastes. Many of them very reasonably priced. Some of the prices were comparable to middle range supermarket wines and much much better flavour. We ended up buying several bottles. We will probably do more trips to the island and will no doubt end up there.
I think Southern Vectis Buses tentacles stretch that far so that could make life easier.

“Waste of time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

Thr introductory talk was poorly presented. They should send their staff on a basic Presentations Course. The vineyard and winery were uninteresting. The wine varied from ordinary to awful. I'm astonished they manage to survive.

“i was surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

When our group decided to go to this vineyard i was not interested. I do not frink wine so thought it would be rubbish. How wrong was I? Driving upto the entrance, we could see all the grapes on the vines. We tasted some of the wines they had, whilst the older woman gave a talk and shared alto of information. They also sold liquers, cider and apple juice as well as wine. When we had had the talk, we went into the shop for some tasting - you could try whatever you wanted except champagne. The girls in the shop told us what offers they had on to save us money and we looked around the rest of the building. I was pleasantly surprised.

“Fabulous and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

We had a lovely trip here. Walked around their working winery where there's masses of information, watched a very informative DVD and then had tastings at the counter with someone who definitely new what they were talking about and offered advice and suggestions for tasters after listening to what out likes and dislikes were. Following this we took the un-escorted trail around the vineyard. We bought loads of wine and will definitely go back for more.
