After panting the vines back in 2021 this week will see the first harvest taken from The Rutland Vineyard! We are grateful how well the vines have taken to their new environment and excited about the future! We are planning an open picking day for anyone that wants to be among the first people since The Romans to come and pick grapes in Rutland. Just bring you secateurs and give us a hand picking and we'll provide some wine and cake to say thank you.
We haven't picked our picking date yet but it will be either Sunday 1st October or Monday 2nd. We'll update the website, Facebook and Instagram later this week with more details and a confirmed date.
If you're looking somewhere to relax and you like either wine, coffee, cake or cheese pop along to the vineyard. You can also enjoy the 1km nature trail around the vineyard. No bookings, no entrance fee, just some and have some fun!
Please come along and walk around our nature trail along the Jurassic Way with a freshly ground coffee and enjoy the amazing views! We've also got our homemade tray bakes and local cheese board on offer along with a host of English still and sparkling wines!
We're situated just outside the lovely village of Ketton on Barrowden Road, and only a ten minute drive away from the A1, A47, A43 and the beautiful market town of Stamford!
No bookings required and no entry fee to the vineyard.
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.

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!

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