Former Producers of Fine Estate Grown English wines


Moorlynch vineyard grew grapes and made wine for over 20 years. During that time we became well known and won many awards for our wines. Following a decision in 1999 to retire the proprietors Anne and Peter Farmer steadily reduced the size of the vineyard, and ceased wine production entirely with the 2002 harvest. However as wine production has been run down we have diversified our many fine buildings to other uses, which include craft units (for details click on CRAFTS below), and an outside catering company (click on NIBBLES CATERING below).

The introduction of new alcoholic drinks licensing laws precipitated a decision to close our shop and restaurant completely from November 24th 2005, when the new law came into force. We regret we no longer sell directly to the general public, only to trade customers, from whom we welcome enquiries about our Sleeping Beauty Brandy (for product details and prices click on BRANDY below).
