With harvest and Christmas under their belt, Halfpenny Green Wine Estate, situated near Wombourne, are all geared up for another busy year! 2018 was an exceptional year for The Estate; with not only the completion of their large, airy conservatory and the addition of their Wine Loft Balcony, they also had a record harvest, exceeding far beyond their expectations. For once, the Great British Summer stepped up to the mark, giving them the perfect grape-growing climate and consequently, an abundance of grapes from their 30 acres of vines, eventually to become their 2018 vintage of wines.
The recently completed Wine Loft Balcony, which gives stunning views over the spectacular South Staffordshire countryside, adds another dimension to the Estate’s offerings. With their own range of thirteen award-winning wines and over ninety British gins from artisan distillers, the new balcony, which will also be opening during the evenings, offers a tranquil, child-free area for customers to relax and enjoy their favourite tipple, along with the Chef’s delicious Tapas, if desired! This will be the perfect place to unwind and delight in the beauty of the vineyards and the surrounding countryside, maybe even catching a breath-taking Spring sunset or two!
With Spring in mind, what better place to celebrate Mother’s Day than Halfpenny Green Wine Estate this March. On Sunday 31st, the restaurant will be serving a special three-course meal. The delicious menu is created by the Head Chef and is available for one day only. As always, everything is cooked fresh-to-order and served directly to your table by a team of friendly service staff. What better way to treat that special lady! Places are limited though, so booking is necessary by calling the Restaurant on 01384 221122.
