Production

At celtic country wines we specialise in turning fruits and other delicious ingredients into little bottles of heaven. We source ingredients from all over the world to ensure we get the best quality ingredients all year round, ingredients like fresh elderflowers are abundant in the Welsh countryside so we are able to collect them from our doorstep. As well as Wine, Liqueur and vinegar we also produce our own range of jams, chutneys and marmalades.

Wine

We ferment all of our wines in 1000L containers of which we have the facility to ferment 4 at a time. The fermentation room is temperature regulated to a constant 24c which will keep the wine (or soon to be wine) at a near constant temperature of 18c. It will take between 2-4 weeks to ferment and is then stored for 6 months to mellow and improve the flavours.

The Winery

The Winery is set in a small village in rural West Wales, open to visitors with a delightful gift shop, coffee room and adjoining garden centre. Find out more on the Visit us page
