Time flies when you’re making wine

It was only 12 months ago that we wrote about how it is not very often that you can give English grapes ‘hang time’ to really concentrate the flavours, but here we are again with an amazingly dry September and October, and the grapes to show for it. The 2016 vintage has also had the benefit of a very warm and dry August which has allowed the grapes to reach full ripeness and beyond.

The right ripeness

The Bacchus grapes have come in with very high ripeness levels so we expect some aromatic still ...

Apple harvest approaches

English Romantic Poet John Keats described autumn as the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’, which certainly puts us in mind of our forthcoming apple harvest.

Here at Lyme Bay Winery we are passionate about keeping the skill of Westcountry cider making alive and use the pressed juice of locally grown traditional cider varieties such as Dabinett, Kingston Black and Yarlington Mill to make our award-winning ciders.

The apples for these come from The Somerset Cider Brandy Company, where Julian...

Firstly, what is it?

Mead is a delicious beverage made by fermenting honey and water with a range of different spices to create a wonderful flavour-rich drink.

How has Game of Thrones increased the popularity of mead?

Birch wine back in stock

It’s the moment many of you have been waiting for: our ever-popular Birch wine is back in stock.

An English tradition dating back thousands of years, birch sap collection happens in early spring before any green leaves have appeared, as in late spring the sap turns bitter. Last year we sold out in record time – by July – because the short harvest season for the birch sap needed to make our Birch wine means the number of bottles we can produce is limited.

Birch tapping

Tapping the sap is done by dri...
