Vineyards and Orchards
In the Bickley Valley there are nine Vineyards and one Cider House. Here you will find an introduction and details for each one. At the bottom is a handy map to help you work out where they are in relation to each other.
Mother and Daughter team, Di & Lara, run this lovely little winery and as the cellar door is in the winery production area you also get to see how the wine you are trying is made.
Formerly known as Piesse Brook until 2007 when Lara returned to run the wine making, they produce Chardonnay, Shiraz, Merlot and Cab Sav. Open for tastings 1pm to 5pm Sat and Sun.
