After a bumper harvest this year, there is an air of excitement at Halfpenny Green Wines Estate, situated near Wombourne; with a record crop of grapes this year comes more of their delicious, award-winning wines!
As the festive period draws closer, this is a perfect time to visit the Wine Loft, situated in the Wine Estate’s shop. Here you will find, proudly presented on one side of the room on beautiful bespoke shelving, their selection of 13 award-winning wines, ranging from whites, rosé, red and fizz, all grown and made on-site. For something a little stronger, on the opposite wall be prepared for a gin-lovers haven! Be blown away by a huge and varied selection of, on the last count, around 90 artisan British gins! If you are stuck for choice, the staff, who are both friendly and knowledgeable, will be happy to let you have a sample. If you would like to know more about the wine and gins stocked or have a friend or relative who would be interested in learning more, why not book a full tasting experience. Sessions are available to book seven days a week (weekdays only during December), subject to availability, for both wine and gins. Starting at just £19.95 per person, they’re a perfect Christmas gift too, with vouchers available to purchase in the shop.
If you’re stuck for gift ideas for that person who has everything or just looking for something a little different, a bespoke hamper is the perfect solution. In a range of sizes to suit all budgets and put together in the shop while you wait, you can choose from a range of cheese, chocolates, biscuits, jams, chutneys, wine, beer, gins, sweets and much more, to create the perfect gift.
You cannot visit Halfpenny Green Wine Estate without indulging yourself in the Restaurant. Open for lunch from 12pm to 3:30pm daily, this Christmas from 2nd December, the kitchen will be serving a special Christmas menu, featuring a range of homemade classics which are lovingly prepared and cooked fresh upon ordering, served to your table by a team of dedicated waiting staff. Or, for those feeling a little less festive but wanting a special treat, why not book a Vintage High Tea – a selection of dainty finger sandwiches, cream cakes and scones, all served on vintage fine-bone china, with the extra option of a glass of fizz if you’re feeling particularly decadent! What better way to destress and treat yourself over the Christmas period.
Halfpenny Green Estate is the perfect destination this Christmas for all of your shopping, dining and entertainment needs. With over fifteen other bespoke and artisan businesses in the on-site craft centre, WILD Zoological Park open over the weekends (during winter) including live shows, and a whole range of festive gifts options available in the shop and food in the restaurant, why head anywhere else over the holidays.
