CLA Cymru: White Castle Vineyard tour, tasting & lunch


“From the land we love, Wines we are proud of “

White Castle vineyard is owned by Robb & Nicola Merchant, situated in the beautiful rolling countryside of Monmouthshire in the village of Llanvetherine close to the towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth.

The 10 acre vineyard is planted on gentle slopes that are ideal for growing vines and ripening grapes for Welsh wine.

White Castle Vineyard is dedicated to producing a variety of quality Welsh wines using first class viticultural practices.

Internationally Award Winning Quality Welsh Wine available for purchase from the Cellar Door.

Having purchased the 12 acre small holding in 1995, Robb and Nicola Merchant converted the milking parlour into their home a year later. It was 2008, though, before the dream of owning a vineyard become a reality – the 5 acre gently sloping, south facing field was purchased, soil tests were performed and vines ordered.

May 2009 saw the planting of 4000 vines, the varieties of vines planted were Pinot Noir, Regent, Rondo, Seyval Blanc & Phoenix, now there was no turning back, May 2010 saw a further planting of 800 Siegerrebe vines.

May 2019 marked their 10 year Anniversary since first planting and to mark this milestone they have planted a further 2000 vines, of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc.

Join us for a tour of the vineyard followed by the tasting of three of their award winning wines and a platter of light lunch - Artisan meat, cheese or fish to choose from.

All platter choices to be pre ordered and any dietary requirements to be notified by email to
