About Velfrey Vineyard
We are open on Thursdays and Saturdays for afternoon teas and grazing boards, vineyard tours and the sale of wines and vine sponsorship packages. Tours start at 11am and last approximately 90 minutes – for tours, booking is advised. Booking is essential for our teas and boards, because they are freshly prepared to order. Please visit our website www.velfreyvineyard.com to book teas, boards and tours. You can also call 07950 886644 or 07957 113355 or 07960 113355 or e-mail email@example.com for further information or to arrange your visit. We established in 2016 and our first bottles of premium Welsh sparkling wine and still white wine are now available for purchase. Visitors taking a vineyard tour will be greeted in our garden lodge (which has toilet facilities). Then we will make a slide presentation explaining the history of the site, and the process of making sparkling wines in the traditional way (including some surprising historical facts about where the so called ‘Champagne method’ originated!) You will then be taken into the vineyard to see the vines close up and told about a year in the life of the vineyard, to help you understand the way in which they are cared for. If you choose one of our optional vine sponsorship packages, you will also have the chance to choose your own vine and see your personalised slate tag secured beside it, before being presented with you personalised certificate. The cost of the vineyard tour is £15 per person, with discounts for groups of 10 or more, and includes a free taste of our wine. Children accompanied by an adult are free; well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead. The vine sponsorship package is £45 and includes a bottle of our premium sparkling wine; as well as the personalised slate tag and certificate mentioned above. Afternoon teas and Welsh Grazing Boards cost £20 per person and can be booked either with a tour or independently – they are only served on certain days and pre-booking is essential.

The lodge where we welcome visitors has a double door and a ramp on both the entry and exit sides. One of the bathrooms is wheelchair accessible although there are no handrails. There is a smooth and wide compacted path down into the edge of the vineyard, although access to the vines themselves is of necessity across a grassed area, so access may be difficult depending on ground conditions.
We are on Velfrey Road, between Whitland and Lampeter Velfrey/Narberth.
From Whitland, take the road towards Tavernspite, past the railway station and over the level crossing. Shortly after take the first turning on the right onto Velfrey Road. Continue for about a mile and a half until the road begins to descend. Shortly afterwards, you will see Velfrey Vineyard on the left hand (South) side. Look out for a cream-painted wall with large black metal gates.
From Narberth, follow the signs for the crematorium. Go past it on the left, then through Llanmill and through Lampeter Velfrey. Continue for about a mile until the road bears round to the right at the end of a large S bend. Shortly afterwards, you will see Velfrey Vineyard on the right hand (South) side. Look out for a cream-painted wall with large black metal gates.
From the A40, there is a country lane which brings you almost to the vineyard in just over a mile. However, it is narrow and there are limited passing places. If you wish to come that way, the lane can be found just on the Pembrokeshire side of the Carmarthenshire/Pembrokeshire border, on the South side of the A40 (which is on the left if you are heading West towards Haverfordwest, or the right if you are heading East towards St Clears/Carmarthen). The lane takes you over a hump-back bridge across the railway and continues to Velfrey Road. Turn left onto Velfrey Road and Velfrey Vineyard is immediately on your right. Look out for a cream-painted wall with large black metal gates.
There is a railway station in Whitland, about a mile and a half away from the vineyard and a railway station in Narberth about three miles away. There is no scheduled bus service which passes the entrance so visitors relying on public transport will need to arrange a taxi from either of these nearby towns.
