White Castle Vineyard

Attractions

Our aim is to produce Quality Welsh Wines. We are very passionate about what we do here at White Castle Vineyard and are always striving to be as good as we possibly can be. We feel very privileged to have a vineyard here in Abergavenny. White Castle Vineyard is a small Welsh vineyard situated near the market towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth it is owned and run by Robb and Nicola Merchant. Having purchased the 12 acre small holding in 1995 they converted the milking parlour into their home a year later, however it was 2008 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 vines this variety being Siegerrebe. Robb & Nicola have

attended Plumpton College East Sussex to study viticulture, this training giving them the skills needed to produce quality Welsh Wines.The Scott Henry trellising system was erected in 2010 with the help of family members. The first harvest taking place through October 2011.

Review

Wales is fast becoming a real mover and shaker when it comes to vineyards and the wine they produce and there is one couple that really have shaken the apples from the trees, excuse the pun, they are Nicola & Rob Merchant of the White Castle Vineyard, Nr Abergavenny. Being keen wine drinkers themselves, Robb and Nicola really have become somewhat connoisseurs of their craft and their new vineyard tour is fast becoming a big hit with other wine drinking experts. They have become that trusted within their field, they have supplied and been involved with providing wine for even foreign dignitaries from around the world within foreign office events. I really like this little attraction and I know you will too. Their reception area and shop, together with the successful operation they run from there is a slick and professional operation and you couldn’t be in safer hands on this vineyard tour.
