Sourcing local ingredients is at the heart of many of the fruit wines that we make here at Lyme Bay – and of course all our staff live nearby too.

No, we are not talking about the Champions League final (though come on Liverpool!) but that other thing that’s happening on Saturday 19 May: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

Yo ho ho and a bottle of Lugger

Here at Lyme Bay Winery we always like to add a dash of history to our award-winning range of drinks, and the newest launch from our cellar door is no exception.

You may well be familiar with our Jack Ratt founding brand, inspired by a famous local smuggler from the South Devon coast called Jack Rattenbury.

UK’s best cider festivals
