Grape expectations from this year’s harvest

With roughly 300 tonnes of English grapes processed so far we are coming to the end of this year’s harvest, and it’s clear that the scorching temperatures of summer that stretched into a warm and dry start to autumn have allowed the grapes to reach their full ripeness.

Exceptional yields

In fact, our head winemaker Liam Idzikowski thinks this could be the best year yet for Lyme Bay Winery’s English wines. While the Bacchus grapes have come in with very high ripeness levels, Liam is particularly ex...

Alcohol Gift Ideas

When it comes to choosing the perfect present, some people are really easy to buy for. If you’ve got a Lego-loving niece or a bookworm-ish great aunt, then the task is a no-brainer.

But what about those people who always say “no, no, don’t get me anything” whenever it’s their birthday or events where you don’t know the host that well, but you know it’s only polite to take a gift?

This year they left behind the hustle and bustle of life in Surrey to take over The Tantivy, a traditional shop, café and deli in the historic Exmoor town and tourist hotspot of Dulverton.

On our last trip down there to drop off their latest order of Lyme Bay Winery products, we stopped for a chat to find out what broug...

Celebrate the Royal Wedding with Lyme Bay Winery

Can you believe it’s May already? The grim weather isn’t helping us get into the spirit of Spring much, but at least there’s a spot of pomp and sparkle in a couple of Saturdays’ time to look forward to.

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.

Whether you are planning to toast the happy couple with a glass of fizz at ho...

UK's best cider festivals

UK’s best cider festivals

The UK consumes more cider than any other nation on the planet, so it’s no wonder our 500 or so cider producers have something to celebrate. Now that the Beast from the East has turned tail and Spring is well and truly upon us, it’s time to look forward to some of the UK’s best cider festivals. It comes as a shock to no one that many of these take place in the South West, but here’s our round-up of some to check out further afield as well.
