Herefordshire Produces Top Tipples, From Wine & Spirit Producers To Micro Breweries

Herefordshire drink producers are a vibrant and diverse community, celebrating high-quality beverages. Despite being well-known for its cider making credentials, the county is now becoming recognised for its wines. You are encouraged to visit vineyards to buy wine directly from the cellar door which is an intriguing experience for you, and a way of selling that benefits the wine producer, too.

The grape-strewn landscapes of Italy and France might still be the places that you think of first when it comes to bottles of vino, but the English wine scene is growing in popularity and is increasingly recognised as a premium wine-producing region. The most popular grape varieties grown in English vineyards are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bacchus, as well as Pinot Meunier and Ortega.

Some producers offer beer, cider and wine tasting days, and winery tours and accommodation – there is self-catering breaks, B&Bs, glamping, caravanning and camping. A perfect getaway, on your own, as a couple, or with friends & family. One of our favourites is Black Mountain Botanicals situated in the shadows of the rugged Black Mountains which provides plentiful streams of clear, pure water. And surrounded by the fields and orchards of Herefordshire both of which are perfect for blending the smoothest gins, infused with natural country flavour.

Another experience of local spirit is at Ludlow Distillery. Discover how they handcraft premium spirits on one of their distillery tours or create your very own botanical gin at Gin School.

Most of these tipples from Herefordshire drink producers are at outlets throughout the UK and most wine and spirits can be found in The Secret Bottle Shop in the City of Hereford. You will also find these products at drink festivals, Herefordshire hampers and gift baskets. They make the perfect hamper for Christmas and include many award winning beverages, beautifully presented with a complimentary gift tag with your personal message.
