Summer 2010

Grapes ripening, Lily Farm Vineyard, east Devon, Summer 201012 September 2010

We have had a busy season with many visitors taking our guided tour.   Tours, by appointment. will continue as we move into autumn.  We are  sold out of all red wine and are awaiting the bottling of the 2009  vintage.  The vines are now netted to protect the grapes from the birds, and the crop looks healthy and plentiful.We are expecting 4 1/2  tons  from the four varieties.Volunteer grape pickers can ring us on  01395443877 to join in on one of the four harvest dates (yet to be  decided but from the beginning of October onwards)
