Dalwood Vineyard, East Devon

Dalwood Vineyard was planted in 2009/2010 by a group of villagers with an ambition to produce great English wines. We planted 3,000 vines comprising four varieties – Seyval Blanc, Madeleine Angevine, Pinot Noir and Solaris.

Our first vintage was from the 2013 harvest. Our sparkling Brut was enthusiastically received (now all gone of course) and won a Bronze Medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards. We made a Dry White with our 2014 vintage which developed well and won a Silver Medal in the Taste of the West annual tasting.


2015 Brut – Seyval Blanc and Pinot Noir

“For a young first release, the wine has a surprisingly rounded palate that ticks all the boxes to produce a crowd-pleasing result. Crisp apples, pear and light citrus flavours up front, with a ripe and fruity mid taste that is almost slightly off-dry in style. Overall, a rather tasty and moreish bottle of sparkling wine.”
John Mobbs, Great British Wine

2015 Dry White – Solaris and Madeleine Angevine

A dry, crisp fruity wine with subtle melon and honey middle notes finishing off with green apples and pears. When serving the wine from ‘Cold’ leave for approximately 2 minutes to allow the full flavours to develop. Wonderful with salads, seafood or simply just drinking by itself.
