Renishaw Hall Wine Harvest
Renishaw Hall’s vineyard was planted by Alexandra Sitwell’s father, the late Sir Reresby in 1972. Up until 1986 it was certified the most northern vineyard in the world, 53 degrees 18 minutes north.
A vineyard tour gives you a fascinating insight into the running of the vineyard and the cycle of winemaking. Kieron Atkinson, our award-winning winemaker, takes the tours around the vineyard. This hour and a half tour includes the chance to sample the delicious, medal-winning still and sparkling wine we produce.
Why not visit our shop afterwards to purchase a bottle of Renishaw wine to enjoy at home or celebrate a special occasion?
Private tours for groups of 12 and over can be booked by contacting Kieron Atkinson at email@example.com.
During the season we hold a number of public tours of the vineyard. Dates for the 2014 season are:
May 11th (Renishaw Hall plant fair)
May 25th (English wine week)
Aug 10th (Renishaw Hall plant fair)
Sept 21st (TBC subject to harvest)
Pre-booked group tours (min of 12 people) are also available on Thursdays and at weekends from May to Sept.
Tours cost £10 per person and last approximately an hour and a half, including wine tasting. Pre-booking essential.

Renishaw Hall's vineyard was planted by Alexandra Sitwell's father, the late Sir Reresby, in 1972, and so this year it celebrates an incredible 40 years! Until 1986, it was certified as the most northerly vineyard in the world at 53 degrees 18 minutes north.
Renishaw Hall & Gardens offer informative vineyard tours and tastings throughout the year for groups of ten or more with our Vineyard Manager Kieron Atkinson, where visitors are taken through the cycle of the vineyard followed by an informal tasting session of the sparkling and white wine produced by Renishaw Hall's very own grapes.
Kieron's 2011 white wine won a national award this year -- the United Kingdom Vineyards Association (UKVA) awarded his Madeleine Angevine a bronze medal, proving that Derbyshire wine is on a par with those produced in the south of the country.
