1979 - 2015

36 YEARS YOUNG!

WE NOW HAVE THE OLDEST COMMERCIALLY PRODUCTIVE VINES IN DEVON.

Since 2011 we have been selling our grape crop rather than having wine made for us to sell as the Manstree brand. Instead as the 2010 vintage sells out we will be stocking wines from other local Vineyards including those who have bought Grapes from us which have ended up in their own vintage!

FOLLOW THE BROWN SIGNS TO MANSTREE VINEYARD.

We now have brown tourist signs put in place to direct people from Alphington, Exeter to the Vineyard, please look out for these to help you find us!

For those with SatNav we have a unique post code which should help you, this is EX2 9QR.

TELEPHONE 01392 832218 FOR MORE INFORMATION

Manstree Vineyard occupies a warm sunny slope     1 1/2 miles from the Exeter city boundary at Shillingford st George and has been producing commercial grape crops for the last 30 years.

Vines flourish in an area of the county known as 'Devons Frying Pan' having a low summer rainfall due to the double rain shaddow effect from Dartmoor and the Haldon Hills.

Manstree takes its name from the road that passes the farm and that of a nearby field indicating that there was once a gallows for sheep stealers and other felons, literally a

Man's Tree.

There are currently five varieties grown on 4 1/2 acres the main 3 being Seyval Blanc, Madeleine Angevine a south west speciality vine & Siegerebbe a relation of the gewurztraminer grape.

 

WINES 2015

The Manstree wines that we are currently selling are as follows.

The driest wine in our range it has a crisp green apple flavour, good with spicy food.

Highly Commended 2011 SWVA Competiton

 

2010 SIEGERREBE MEDIUM DRY - £9.50 per bottle
