Food & Drink

Overview & description

The Vineyard

Our award winning wines are produced from grapes grown in our Vineyard at Nun Monkton, York, handpicked by our dedicated team of helpers and processed in our very own modern winery. Winemaker Gillian carefully monitors the wines during the 12 month fermentation/maturation period. All wines are stabilized before filtering, bottling, labelling and packaging in house. Our Sparkling wines are the only sparkling fully produced from grape to glass in Yorkshire by means of the traditional Champagne method of 2nd fermentation. We are immensely proud of a business that creates fine artisan Yorkshire products by our very hard working team.

The Brewery

We are passionate about producing honest, quality easy drinking craft beers to the highest possible standards which is why all of our beers are brewed on site using only top quality malts and hops from reputable suppliers, and water from our own natural spring which helps give our beers their unique Yorkshire taste, even our beer bottles are made in Yorkshire! Tim & his team have worked extremely hard over the past few years to build the brewery from its modest initial proposal to the efficient modern brew house developed over two floors that it is today. The brewery has a fantastic reputation for producing quality easy drinking craft ales in cask, poly-pins & bottles which are thoroughly enjoyed mainly across Yorkshire but can also be found as far away as London!

Tours & Tastings

With 10 acres of fantastic views of vines and natural beauty it’s not surprising that Yorkshire Heart’s tours and tastings have become extremely popular with many different groups, businesses and organisations as well as a special parties & days out. We have found that people enjoy coming to the vineyard & brewery for tours & tastings because the team’s passion & knowledge shines through and of course the amazingly beautiful setting right in the heart of Yorkshire.

We are so thankful to work where we do every day and so our enthusiasm to share the products we produce clearly shines through; people leave amazed and enthused by the experience & the knowledge of our team.

In 2015 local MP Nigel Adams brought the Ambassador of Taiwan for a tour and tasting, they both thoroughly enjoyed themselves and absolutely loved our products & what we do.

We offer tours from 2 people up to 60 people which can include a tour of the brewery as well as the vineyard, special evenings in the vineyard or even just a tasting if the weather turns against us!
