About Llanerch Vineyard
Originally a dairy farm, the first vines - a mixture of French and German hybrids, perfectly suited to the UK's climate - were planted in Llanerch in 1986. Labelled as "Cariad" wines (meaning Sweetheart or Dearest in Welsh), the wines were well received and proved hugely successful, gaining many awards. The vineyard is now fully operational, producing approximately 10,000 bottles of fine Cariad Wine each year. The current owners, The Davies family, purchased Llanerch Vineyard in 2010 and after extensive refurbishment, reopened the property in June the following year.
