How do you fancy a bottle of English Wine and Afternoon Tea in an English Vineyard? 

By Victoria Turner | 23rd June 2020

What if I said this was possible and it is only a 30-minute drive from Harrogate!

Have you ever thought about trying English wine?

As it’s National English wine week I thought we’d focus on an amazing vineyard just up the road from me – Yorkshire Heart.

Based at Nun Monkton in the heart of Yorkshire, Yorkshire Heart is a family-owned vineyard that’s been producing English wine since 2000.  Over the years I’ve got to know owners Tim & Georgina through a brewery tour back in 2018. Today they along with Tim’s parents lovingly care for over 22,000 vines.

They take great pride in what they do which I saw on a recent trip last November to the vineyard to help them save a crop from an early frost. Yep, I went to pick the grapes. Often during the picking season, they look for volunteers to help them pick the crop. It’s a fantastic experience and a great day out. Experiences at Yorkshire Heart don’t stop there, they also offer tours and tastings of the brewery and vineyard which they hope to start back up next month.

Yorkshire Heart Vineyard Afternoon Teas

Currently, Yorkshire Hart is offering vineyard picnics with afternoon tea, and with a heatwave on the way, this might just be the perfect afternoon outing for you and your loved ones to create some amazing memories.

The experience is just £30.00 per couple (additional adults are £25.00, £12.50 for children over 12, £7.50 for children under 12) and you’ll get to choose any bottle of our award-winning English wines or 3 of their beers, plus a delicious afternoon tea, with homemade scones and chocolate-dipped strawberries, to enjoy on your own picnic blanket among the vines. I mean, it doesn’t get much more romantic! For those that want to sit at a table, they also have some picnic benches.

Yorkshire Heart delivers to your door

If your itching to go but live a little too far away, never fear. Yorkshire Heart also delivers and until 30th June 2020, they’re offering 15% off online orders with the code JUNE15.
