Discovering Welsh Wine – Welsh Wine Week

It’s Welsh Wine Week. It is the perfect time to celebrate the flourishing Welsh wine industry and explore the exceptional wines produced in the country. At Celtic Wines, we take pride in offering a diverse selection of Welsh wines that showcase the unique flavours and craftsmanship of local vineyards. Join us on a virtual tour as we delve into the histories of Velfrey Vineyard in Pembrokeshire, Glyndwr Vineyard in the Vale of Glamorgan, and the wines from Spring Hollow Vineyard. 

Velfrey Vineyard: Excellence in Pembrokeshire

Established in 2016, Velfrey Vineyard has swiftly gained recognition and acclaim for its commitment to producing top-quality still and sparkling wines. The vineyard’s dedication to excellence was recently acknowledged when it received the Small Drinks Producer of the Year award at the Food and Drink Wales 2023 awards.  

With limited production, Velfrey Vineyard offers a selection of three outstanding wines, soon to be joined by two more top-quality sparkling wines later this year. Keep a keen eye out for these newcomers, as they promise to be exceptional additions to their already impressive portfolio.

It’s an experience that perfectly complements the delightful wines they produce.

Whether you’re seeking sparkling white wine to celebrate a special occasion or a dry white wine to accompany a delightful meal, Glyndwr has something to satisfy every palate. Their range also includes a red wine with rich flavours, a refreshing rose wine, and a delightful sparkling rose with delicious flavours.
