Wraxall Vineyard

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.

The Wines

Somerset Sparkling
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
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
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.
