Our next tasting will focus on the wines of White Castle Vineyard, Llanvetherine, presented by owner Robb Merchant.

Robb and Nicola Merchant purchased a 12 acre small holding in 1995, converting the milking parlour into their home a year later, however it was 2008 before the dream of owning a vineyard become a reality, having purchased a 5 acre gently sloping, south facing field, soil tests were performed and vines ordered.
