For those enquiring about wet Walnuts, sold here in previous years. Please see the notice below


We are not selling Walnuts this year.


The owners of the vineyard brought the management of the site in-house at the end of last year, meaning the business is now family-run. The walnuts were sold last year were supplied by a friend of the previous operators. Selling them again from the vineyard is something that we may look into in future years.
