Astley Vineyard is a family-run wine producer in Worcestershire, with a history of producing quality still wines, including a dessert wine, respected by those in the know.

History

Once the most northerly vineyard in the world, Astley Vineyard was established in the lush Severn Valley in Worcestershire in 1971. It is one of the oldest and smallest commercial vineyards in the UK, producing less than 10,000 bottles in an average year.

Wines

Wines are made from four grape varieties – Madeleine Angevine, Siegerebbe, Bacchus and Kerner. With just 5 acres under vine, Astley is a boutique producer that strives to produce elegant wines full of character, with the focus on still white wines, but also producing a sparkling wine made from Kerner and occasionally a Late Harvest wine.

A Family Enterprise

The original founders, the Bache family, were visionaries of their time, planting a vineyard decades before its potential in England was realised. Many of the original vines still stand, providing Astley with almost unrivalled maturity and heritage.

The vineyard’s subsequent owner, Jonty Daniels – a legend amongst small English wine producers – cherished and crafted the vineyard’s reputation for over 24 years, and so when he retired in July 2017, his mantle was passed over to the Haywood family. Sharing his vision for quality wines that exude passion and love, the family of five have a great many ideas for the future of this little vineyard.

Tours and Events

Intimate vineyard tours and wine tasting events are available to book.

Please note that dogs cannot be accommodated, in order to preserve the wildlife.

A brand new cellar door shop and winery opened in 2018.
