Bedfordshire’s oldest vineyard is 30 this year! Discover the hidden secrets of the medieval vineyard and abbey, why and how the monks made wine, and how we care for the vines all year round.
There will also be tours, wine tastings, other local food stalls, a “pop up” wine school, BBQ and other refreshments. Our Warden Abbey wines will be available to taste & buy (cash and cheques only please). Also a rare opportunity to visit both the vineyard and the historic Warden Abbey building which is being thrown open by the Landmark Trust.
Located near Old Warden, the vineyard is now run by BRCC as a community vineyard which is cared for all year round by volunteers and works with other local charities and schools. The Open Day is organised by the Friends of Warden Abbey Vineyard and is our main fundraiser of the year, to keep this historic vineyard for the community.
Open 11 am to 4 pm. Entry: Adults £2, accompanied children free.
The vineyard is on a gentle slope and the ground is uneven and may not be suitable for people with limited mobility.
