Wines, Gin, Cider, Brandy, Whisky - try them all.
Tours with a difference
All of our Tasting Tours have been created to provide a very personal experience for you. It's not like booking onto a large group tour, we will run a tour with as little as 2 people.
Each of our tours below includes the tasting of at least 4 of our wines, all al fresco in the vineyard, exploring the different plantations and overlooking some spectacular views of the Devon countryside. We'll also try our artisan sparkling cider in the orchard as well as getting to meet the Estate's animals including rare breed Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep and our cheeky pygmy goats.
Further tour options will include trying our Gin and brandy, see below…
To book you tour is as simple as dropping us an email.
Tours last a minimum of 2 1/2 hours, allowing plenty of time to enjoy lunch. If you’d prefer something a little quicker then perhaps a Wine Tasting is for you.

Wine and Cheese
No explanation needed, it's the perfect combination.
Here we explore the vineyard, you'll hear all the stories of the Motley Cru and how the vineyard came about in a most unorthodox fashion. We'll visit all the plantations and taste at least 4 of our wines with some incredible views. As well as this we'll try our artisan sparkling cider and meet the Estate's animals as well! You’ll also be treated to our famous deli feast platters (as seen here), in our stunning safari huts that overlook the vineyard.
£40 per head for a group size of 4 or more people.
If your group size is smaller than 4x people, then the cost is £65 per person.
Wine and Gin
It just got better, Wine, Cheese and Gin...
We then have our Wine, Gin & Cheese Tour.
In addition to tasting our wines and cider, you will enjoy a Gin Tasting of our “Cheeky Ginny” Gin in the Estate’s Herb Garden where you'll also have the opportunity to enjoy fresh G&T’s using botanicals picked right from the garden. We’ll also head to our magical barrel room to try our very unique “Smokin Ginny” Gin.
£70 per person.
The ultimate tour.
Finally, we have our most comprehensive Tour, our “Wine Safari” Tour.
Here we'll be tasting our Wines, Cider, Gin with Whisky/ Brandy Sun-downers.
We will do the Wine Tasting as before enjoying a two course meal made fresh from the vineyard kitchen with a dessert to come after the second part of the tour. We'll then head to the Orchard to taste our Artisan Cider.
Next, we'll meet the Sheep and Pygmy Goats before heading into the Estate’s Herb Garden to enjoy a Gin Tasting and finally, it's back to The Motley Cru Bar for dessert and Whisky/Brandy Sun-downers, tasting our Single Malt Scotch Whisky or newly ageing Brandy. The Cocktail Bar will also be open for any further drinks you may wish to purchase to enjoy the rest of your evening perhaps around our newly finished fire pit!
£90 per person.
A festive way to experience wine.
Winter tours run on demand throughout the off season (October - April). You’ll be treated to a winter version of our Wine Safari Tour (see above) with a more festive/alpine themed menu as well as mulled wine in addition to all the other wines. We’ll have log fires and blankets at the ready for the ultimate cosy wine experience and let’s not forget a scrumptious dessert with a brandy tasting in the barrel room.
£90 per person.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“We had an amazing day on the Wine Safari and it was unlike any vineyard tour I have done before. We loved visiting all the different parts of the vineyard and sampling drinks hidden along the way. Lunch with a view was fantastic even despite the weather! Ben and all the family were really friendly and informative. We have already recommended to friends and family and look forward to coming back ourselves!”
