La Mare Wine Estate on the island of Jersey

Operator

La Mare

Description

Established in 1972, from humble beginnings to a thriving wine estate. See how and why La Mare has become Jersey’s premier producer of speciality food & drink.

Now producing 30 to 40,000 bottles of wine off 21 Acres, as well as crushing up to 100 Tonnes of apples for cider and Apple Brandy. In addition, La Mare produces speciality and Genuine Jersey preserves, mustards, fudge, traditional black butter, and chocolates - all handmade in the estate kitchens.

In 2007, the new winery, distillery and visitor facilities were opened, and now boasts a wonderful restaurant overlooking the vineyards, with plenty of indoor seating and alfresco dining on the terrace.

Visit us, and let us guide you and your senses through the arts of winemaking & distilling, or just enjoy a meal at the new vineyard restaurant.

Tours of the estate run every 45 minutes throughout the day, and take you behind the scenes for a fascinating insight of how we produce our wines, and distill the Jersey Apple Brandy.

Begin your visit with a leisurely stroll through our vineyards, orchards and gardens, or sit, relax and soak up the atmosphere.

Visit the winery, where our award winning wines are made combining winemaking art with the latest equipment and techniques. See the whole vineyard season in our presentation room and learn how wine is made - from sunshine to bottle.

Our orchards provide the wonderfully ripe apples for two important Jersey products; our vintage ciders and Jersey Apple Brandy. See (and smell!) our century old copper pot still producing the clear spirit that with several years of ageing in oak casks will become our soft, mellow and golden apple brandy.

Learn how our wine barrels are made, and see some of the traditional coopers tools in our cooperage, before having a go at making a barrel yourself! You can also try your hand at “tipple dipping” - fill the glass using a traditional Spanish venencia - without getting too wet!

With over a whole year of filming, this brand new Audio -Visual presentation will take you behind the scenes showing you a year in the life of La Mare. Your guide will be on hand to explain the methods of wine and apple brandy production and then offer you a guided tasting, so you can experience the fruits of our labours!

The kids will enjoy the Adventure Playground, our miniature ponies “Bubbles” & “Fizz”, and “Barney” our cheeky goat! We will also ask them to name our two new Jersey calves enjoying their first summer!

Browse our well stocked shop offering more free tastings of our produce as well as an extensive range of wine related and other exclusive and specially selected gift items.

Our new restaurant is open throughout the day for snacks and cream teas through to fabulous lunches.

Dine inside the Orangery, and look out over our vineyards, or sit out on the terrace to enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and vineyards views.

Sitting out on the terrace on a sunny day with a tasty salad lunch and a chilled glass of wine, listening to the slight rustle of leaves in the breeze, and birds happily singing away, has to be one of the highlights of any visit to Jersey! Of course, if the weather is less favourable, a large bowl of our home-made soup and crusty bread is just the ticket!
