A new look for the Winery shop – and our labels

Spring. Tennyson said it turns a young man's fancy to thoughts of love, hares are supposed to go ‘mad’ in March, and some people like to embark on a frenzy of cleaning. Hardly surprising, as we are all glad to see the back of winter and get ready for some better weather and fun times ahead. Here at the Winery we’ve been doing a bit of ‘refresh’ ourselves, with a new look for our quintessential cellar door shop, as well as a facelift for our iconic range of fruit wines.

The rise of botanicals

You can’t move in the hipper bars in town without tripping over someone spouting about the rich and diverse flavours that the botanicals are bringing to their gin. Yes gin; the drink that in the 18th century was called ‘mother’s ruin’ because it was so cheap that its effect on family life was disastrous.

Secret recipes

These days gin has become the drink of choice for beard-toting hipsters, city slickers and discerning drinkers alike. This is partly because today’s production techniques are so so...

Raise a glass to our winning wines

The votes are in and a band of trusted professionals have counted, recounted and verified the results. No, we’re not talking about Big Brother or even the outcome of the General Election – it’s much more important than that. We’ve come to the end of the English Wine awards that we’ve entered this year and are very proud to say that Lyme Bay Winery has had a monumentally successful season.

Since launching our English wines in 2015 we’ve racked up a whole host of accolades, but 2017 has seen our bi...

Fancy a look around?

From your manager’s desk to your mum’s handbag, if you’re anything like us you probably love the chance to have a snoop around somewhere you’re not usually allowed to go.

And if that’s the case then you are in luck, as this autumn (until mid-October) we are offering the general public guided viewings of the harvest process here at Lyme Bay Winery in Devon.

If you’ve always wondered how we get from grapes on the vine to wine in the bottle, come and meet the Winery team who will walk you through the...

Decide on cider

Lots of stories start with an apple: Adam and Eve, William Tell, not to mention Steve Jobs – and even ours here at the Lyme Bay Winery.

Twenty years ago we started making ciders using traditional West Country methods, and now have an unrivalled reputation for producing an award-winning range of ciders of the highest standard. These are our Jack Ratt ciders, made from the pressed juice of locally grown traditional cider varieties such as Dabinett, Kingston Black and Yarlington Mill, all of which a...

Dry drinks for dry January

What does ‘dry January’ mean to you? With Storm Eleanor whipping across the country, this January has been anything but dry so far. But perhaps you are one of those self-controlled types who has pledged to abstain from alcohol for the month to give your body a bit of a rest after the season of festive indulgences.

Here at Lyme Bay Winery we think life is too short – and January a bit too grim – to tackle the dark and chilly first month of the year without at least a few sips of your favourite tip...

How to become a wine expert for Valentine's Day

Become a wine expert for Valentine’s Day

In his 2008 book Outliers Malcolm Gladwell wrote that the key to achieving world-class expertise in any skill is pretty much down to practising for about 10,000 hours.

It’s a big commitment, which probably explains why most of us aren’t experts in anything. But never fear - if you want to become a wine expert in time for Valentine’s Day we’ve got some top tips for how to bring out your inner sommelier.

Spot the best

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. An adventurer through and through, Jack forged his notorious career in the 18th Century smuggling contraband into Lyme Bay using fishing boats called ‘Luggers’. Fast, agile and often painted b...

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...

How to make elderflower wine

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. There’s nettle picking in April to capture the new growth for our Nettle Wine, but nothing signals the approach of summer as much as elderflower picking in June and July from our own trees here at the Winery.

Lyme Bay selects the best elderflowers

Come sunny afternoons our team heads out to collect the beautiful elderflowers from the hedgerows when the...

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...
