Microclimate

With a name steeped in romantic Welsh history, Glyndwr Vineyard is the oldest established vineyard in Wales. Planted by the current owners in 1982, this family-run estate comprises over 6,000 vines, grown on gently south-east facing slopes in the heart of the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan.

Their wines are available locally in Waitrose stores, a mighty success for a team that was told by the French that Wales’s weather would be far too inconsistent for wine growing. Having taken a plot of land from brambles to award winning wine production, Glyndwr is an excellent example of the surprising yet excellent wines that can be produced in Wales.


The wines are evocative of that bold and romantic period of Welsh history.

Micro Climate

Glyndwr vineyard focuses on grapes that can thrive on the south eastern facing limestone soil, which receives lots of sunshine and gentle slopes provide drainage. The main grapes grown are Rondo, Regent and Seyval Blanc, producing award winning sparkling and still white wines, as well as some rosé and red wines.
