Vineyard Tours, Tastings & Events

Vineyard Tours & Tastings (2024)

Join us for a tour of Limeburn Hill Biodynamic Vineyard, located on the south facing slopes of Westfield Farm in the Chew Valley. The vineyard manager and winemaker will take you on a guided walk through the vines, demonstrating how they are managed in a natural and sustainable way, and explain how the biodynamic farming methods work in harmony with the natural world.

The tour will culminate in a guided tasting of our wines where we will explain how we make wine naturally using nothing more than the juice and wild yeast from the grapes. There will also be a chance to ask questions of the makers and buy bottles to take home.

Cheese and Natural Wine in the Vines – A Somerset Food Trail event with Homewood Cheeses

The perfect match – Limeburn Hill Vineyard’s natural wines with delicious natural cheese from Homewood!

The event will include a tour of the vineyard with the owner and winemaker, Robin, followed by a pairing of 3 natural wines with 3 cheeses from Homewood Cheese. Angela, of Homewood, will be there to introduce the cheese and explain the processes they follow from field to fermentation to fork.


Spirit of Place – Limeburn Hill X La Garagista Biodynamic Wine Tasting

(Native Vine, Bristol Loaf, Bedminster)

“As part of teaching an online course on Biodynamic Viticulture, Robin recently interviewed Diedre Heekin of La Garagista Winery (Vermont, USA) and they both found a striking resemblance in their approach to farming, winemaking and connecting with the spirit of place.

Robin approached Charlie at Native Vine with the idea of a collaborative tasting of some very special wines from his and Diedre’s vineyards, where we could explore the similarities and differences of wines following the same philosophies but with over 3000 miles of geographical distance.”

This year we will be sharing our wines at REAL WINE IN THE VINES, a grower-led TRADE tasting of artisan wines, spirits & ciders, with a specific focus on the incredible quality and diversity of those products made here in the UK.
