From Farmyard to Vineyard
Originally a 22-acre dairy farm, the first vines were planted at Llanerch in 1986.
Named ‘Cariad’, meaning ‘sweetheart’ or ‘dearest’ in Welsh, the wines proved hugely successful.
They’re still going strong under the guardianship of Ryan Davies who bought Llanerch Vineyard in 2010. The farmhouse and outbuildings have been significantly refurbished to create what is now known simply as Llanerch.
The 6.5-acre vineyard continues to be nurtured. Today, it harvests around eight to 12 tonnes of grapes each year, producing 10,000 bottles of Cariad wine.
