Buzzards Valley Vineyard
Nestled in the Canwell Valley on a 60-acre site some 8000 vines are grown across seven varieties of German and French grapes. Established in 2001, Buzzards Valley has since grown to develop six fishing lakes, a popular restaurant, and a successful retail and online shop and a monthly Artisan Market
Since 1962 the family business has been here on the Canwell Estate. Starting out with farming, they then moved on to growing vegetables.
The next step was opening a small florists which eventually expanded into a large wholesale business. (Excelsior Dried Flowers)
In 2001, the planting of 8000 vines started and a few years later a winery, shop and restaurant was built on the premises. The business has since grown to include a fishery.
In 2016, the production of gins started, along side our wines and Buzzards Valley continues to be a great success.
The story is far more detailed and a great way to hear more about it is to book onto one of our Vineyard tours!
