Vineyards and Breweries
Ok so you may not initially think of Wiltshire as an important wine and beer producing region however you’d be wrong…
In the heart of Wiltshire is the Wadworth Brewery famous for its 6X beer (plus many more), its traditional brewing techniques and its shire horses which still deliver its beer to local pubs. You can go into the Visitor Centre for free or if you’d like to know more then why not go on one of their tours?* (* there is a charge for going on a tour).
Other Wiltshire breweries include: the recently opened Three Daggers Brewery in Edington, the Hop Back in Downton, Arkell’s in Swindon, The Keystone in Berwick St Leonard and Stonehenge Ales at Netheravon. Often you will find these beers and ales on sale in our local pubs.
Just outside Devizes you’ll find a’Beckett’s Vineyard which produces fine English sparkling and still wines, cider and apple juice. There’s also Fonthill Glebe Wines produced at Teffont Evias, nr Salisbury who also make an English grape brandy. On the edge of Bradford-on-Avon is one of the only 6 vineyards in the UK to have organic status at Quoins Organic Vineyard.
A perfect chance to sample our local produce is often at one of the Food & Drink Festivals taking place across the county.
