Vineyard Tours

Wine Tasting Experience

Come wine tasting Devon!

Unfortunately, we are now fully booked with weddings this year. Please try Sharpham Vineyard or Pebblebed Vineyard, they both provide excellent vineyard tours and wine tasting experiences.

Enjoy a unique wine tasting experience at Brickhouse Vineyard. You’ll take a vineyard tour while enjoying an aperitif, followed by a relaxed and informal wine tasting in the Round House or on the terrace, both of which take the breath-taking panoramic vista offered by the vineyard and surrounding countryside to the coast.

We offer three wine tasting events packages: wine tasting experience, wine and cheese tasting and wine and food matching. Prices start from £20pp for group bookings of 10+ people, and we’ll tailored each package to your requirements and budget.

So whether you are arranging an event for clients, friends or work colleagues, we’ll work with you to make sure you’ll have a fantastic time – and maybe learn something new about wine.

A passion for wine

Our wine tasting events are hosted by Joanna. Her passion for wine started whilst studying in Tuscany, where she fell in love with classic Italian wines and intrigued with the way they could influence the taste of food and enhance a dining experience.

She’s since completed her Level 3 Wines and Spirits Educational Trust qualifications with distinction, a key step in her aim of becoming a wine and food pairing expert. Matt is also studying vineyard maintenance as well as benefiting from hands-on training from a dedicated viticulture consultant. You’ll not doubt meet them both when you visit. Be warned: their enthusiasm for their subject is infectious.

You’ll discover how the wine is made, discuss the building blocks of wine such as acidity, alcohol, tannins and sweetness, and learn how to taste wine like a professional. You’ll try variety of white, red and sparkling wines.

Wine and cheese pairing

If you love cheese and wine, this tasting experience is a must for you.

You’ll enjoy a tour of the vineyard with an aperitif in hand, before returning to the Round House or terrace for your wine and cheese tasting. Under Joanna’s guidance you’ll sample a variety of West Country artisan cheeses from mature hard cheese, blues and soft varieties, all served with delicious biscuits and breads. These’ll be paired with a selection of interesting and unusual wines – dry whites, full-bodied reds and of course some Port – specifically selected to enhance your flavour experience. Cheese and wine has never tasted so good.
