This award-winning vineyard was planted in 1979 on a sunny, south-facing slope overlooking Tintern and the beautiful River Wye. It is believed to be the site used by the monks of Tintern Abbey to cultivate vines hundreds of years ago. The old vines produce high quality wines, many of which have won awards both nationally and internationally. White, rose, red and sparkling wines are made as well as a Welsh Mead and fruit wines which are made with locally grown, or wild, fruits and berries. The Farm shop also sells local cider, perry and ales as well as preserves, honey and garden plants which are grown at the vineyard. A selection of gifts are also available. A self-guided tour of the vineyard may be taken all the year round. Although there is more to see in the summer months, it is interesting at any time and the views over the Wye valley are spectacular. A free wine tasting may be taken in the shop after the tour. Guided group tours and tutored wine tastings are also available but need to be booked in advance. Special occasions such as hen-parties are also catered for.
Some can be forgiven for thinking that if you want to visit a vineyard, you'd at least have to travel to a region of France. Top 100 Attractions can confirm that this is no longer true, and the reason we are so confident, is that we have uncovered an amazing little vineyard which has now been awarded our hidden gem status. Parva Farm Vineyard, is an award winning vineyard based comfortably within the Wye Valley and is more than probably based on the site that would of been used by the monks of Tintern Abbey, you can't get any more special than that! The site is so special, TV networks have all clambered here to film programmes such as ‘The Hairy Bikers' and the BBC'S Countryfile, along with its veteran presenter John Craven. With a well stocked and attractive little shop, you can take a wine tasting session shortly after taking your tour around this wonderful vineyard.
