Quoins, started in 2002, is one of just 18 certified organic vineyards in the UK and they mainly produce three wines – one red and two whites. We will visit the vineyard in the final part of the walk and Alan, the owner, will give us a brief guided tour followed by wine tasting.
The walk will take us north out of BoA. A stiff climb near the start takes us up St Mary Tory where we’ll stop for a few minutes to get our breath back and admire superb views over the town and across to Salisbury Plain. The walking is then mainly level across field paths and along country lanes. After the vineyard visit it is about 1.5 miles back to town.
If you wish to purchase some wine Alan will gladly deliver it down to the start point for you to pick up on arrival back in Westbury Gardens.
