Uncorking Worcestershire wines: vineyards to visit

From 17th-25th June, English Wine Week is celebrated across the country. Championing and recognising a sector which produces over twelve million bottles of wine nationally.

Worcestershire may already be known for its picturesque landscapes and rich heritage which attract visitors from far and wide, however, the county is developing an impressive reputation for wine production which was featured in the Condé Nast – The Best Places to Go in the UK and Ireland 2024.

Emerging as a top UK destination for vineyard tours and tasting experiences, Worcestershire’s vineyards are continuing to draw more visitors putting Worcestershire on the map. WineGB reported in their 2022-2023 Annual Report that tourism is responsible for 75% of all revenue generated for vineyards in the Midlands & North region, which includes the Worcestershire area.

Astley Vineyard, considered one of the oldest vineyards in the UK, produces small-batch award-winning wines. Their on-site cellar door shop offers an extensive choice for customers, including Sauvignon Blanc (2022) or a signature Bacchus (2022) for sparkling wine lovers. Whilst the wines produced are the highlight of the show, Astley’s immersive vineyard tours are driving tourism to the area. The tours provide an unmissable insight into the craft of English wine production and a tour of the sun-kissed vines nestled in the beautiful Severn Valley. To mark English Wine Week, visitors and online customers can grab up to 17% off a delicious range of Astley wines until Sunday 23rd June.
