Collyweston Christmas Fair on Sunday!

We are now in full winter mode in the tasting barn now! We can offer you a delightful range of English wines to try by the glass or even treat yourself to a wine flight. Alongside this you can eat some home made cakes made by The Rutland Chef or some amazing local cheeses from Rennit and Rind. If you're driving we have range of soft drinks and freshly ground coffees on offer.   

We're still excited about offering a brand new English sparkling wine from the tasting barn as well. The sparkles have been produced by one of the best wine makers in the UK exclusively for The Rutland Vineyard. The Blanc de Blancs has taken two years to be produced and showcases the incredible quality English wine can now offer!


Please keep an eye on the website, social media or even sign up at the bottom of our website to hear about our new arrivals and offers first. Our wine, cheese and dinosaur talks have now sold out- thank you for the enthusiasm! Coming soon we have.....

Row post renewal time for 2023- keep your name in the vineyard for our 1st vintage!

A Christmas cracker box-set of all our English wines- a brilliant gift!

Snap up the limited number of brand new row posts for our pinot noir vines that will be planted in May 2023. Once they've gone they've gone!


As the evenings draw in and you fancy getting together with friends, family or work colleges then perhaps you would like a private vineyard tour? If you would like to come along and see what we are doing in the vines and then sample some English wine with a WSET qualified host then please drop us an email. We can host 15-25 people per tour.

We have now sold out of row post sponsorships for 2022. Thank you for your support- it has meant a lot to see people supporting our new venture.

All the business row sponsorships have also now been sold- this means there is already £2,000 raised for our our local Charity this year who are Ketton Scouts!

Wishing you all the best and looking forward to welcoming you.

Beautiful vineyard in Rutland producing stunning wines on Jurassic limestone soil.

Located on top of a narrow ridge between the rivers Welland and Chater, 70m above sea level and facing south we’ve got prime part of Rutland. Hard to think 160 million years ago this would have been England’s south coast! Single site vineyard planted in 2021.

Guided tours around the vineyard showing you where and how the vines grow to make our unique wines. See what goes into your glass of wine after the tour at our tasting barn overlooking the beautiful view.


Over 1400 people visited, sunflowers galore were cut and thanks to the amazing generosity of all the visitors we had raised £5,147.60! Zoe donated the funds in September and Rutland Sailaibilty are looking at purchasing a new rescue boat. We knew at this point we already had the best customers even before we’ve opened!

We raised over £5000 for Rutland Sailability

Jurassic Way Wines was funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

In 2021 it helped transform the old farm barn into the tasting barn you see today.
