Wraxall Vineyard lies on a beautiful warm south-facing slope which is situated between the Mendip and Quantock Hills in Somerset. It is the perfect location for growing a variety of grapes that capture the very essence of English Wine.
Brian Shirley and Jacky Brayton bought the vineyard in 2007, and will take you through 3 glasses of English wines and a glass of fizz. Enjoy tasting theses wine in an unpretentious way, taking with you useful tasting notes.
A delicious dry white sparkling wine with soft bubbles and gentle fruit flavours. Baked apples on the nose with incredible length. Bottle fermented in the traditional method.
Madeleine Angevine is a Loire grape which makes a delightful fruity wine with a flowery nose similar to an Alsace Pinot Blanc. It has a gentle dry finish and makes an excellent aperitif.
Somerset dry is a blend of grapes we grow at Wraxall Vineyard. This blend has produced a crisp dry white wine with the gentle nose of Madeleine Angevine. It goes beautifully with fish, chicken and creamy pasta dishes. The blend is 40% Madeleine Angevine, 40% Bacchus and 20% Seyval Blanc. We think of Somerset Dry as Sauvignon Blanc in style but with Somerset attitude.
Pinot Noir Rosé
Our still rosé wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. It is pale in colour with strawberry aroma. Perfect for summer drinking. It doesn’t demand food but is excellent with seafood. Elegant dry finish.
