We have been to the vineyard twice now and loved it both times. Have had the wine tour and tasting and sampled some of the home cooked food which was very nice. Sat in the sun, in the peace and quiet and a sample of wines was the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. The first visit we got... More

Visited here this week on one of the hottest days of the year with the intention of doing a tour! Unfortunately for me as I am fair skinned we opted not to do the tour which is about an hour long purely because it is all outside with no shade! (Completely down to me burning if I even look at...

We were on a whistle stop tour today and decided to visit the vineyard shop. It is a beautifully laid out shop with everything you want easily accessible. The wine chutneys, etc, are available for tasting and as you would hope are really great. We bought a few bottles, and had some customised labels printed to use the bottles as... More

Parked the car in the Car Park and went into the Cafe / Shop. We had a Lovely Sandwich and a Cup of Coffee. Some people were going on a... More

It would be great to see some photos of the vineyard back in the 60's /70's. I wonder if any locals still have some? Thank you for coming by and for leaving feedback. More

Spent a pleasant afternoon at Adgestone Vineyard. The location is great set in the hillside with superb views of the coast and surrounding land. We opted for the audio tour guide and followed sign posts along the vineyard as we immersed ourselves into the world of wine production. After a leisurely stroll around the vineyard taking in the views and... More

An audio headset is provided which is very easy to use and you can then walk around the vineyard at your own pace and listen to the commentary.Never had an audio tour before and I think it actually works better than having someone doing the tour.Very fascinating and informative tour and after this the owner "Russ" gave us a very...

We have always been a bit unsure of audio tours with those dreaded headsets, but we really enjoyed this one. The pace is leisurely and on a warm afternoon it was really fun to tour around the vineyard. The tour ends with a wine tasting conducted by the staff, and this was informative - especially discovering just how good English... More

Hi Neil From previous reviews, the tour headsets have proved a good decision I think. They let you relax at your own pace and without other guests interrupting your space. Thanks for the good review and nice to know you enjoyed the day. Russ More

I can't take personal credit for the sponge Niel, but will be sure to pass on your appreciation. We stick to what we are good at, wine, good service and of course...Arson Fire sauces. 😬 Thanks for the great review. More
