February 26, 2020 - 107 views

Visiting a vineyard is probably not something most people would think of when planning a trip to the beautiful country of Wales, but that is gradually changing as a number of small wine producers begin to make a name for themselves, both at home and overseas.

In the county of Conwy in north Wales, the Gwinllan Conwy Vineyard has seen its business grow rapidly since it opened in 2016. Today, the vineyard, located in the hamlet of Llangwstenin, has the capability of producing up to around 10,000 bottles per year and this could well increase to 20,000 in the near future.

The wine they produce is sold online and locally, and they already export some of it to Japan, with the owners eyeing other markets in the Asia Pacific region as well as closer to home.

In this exclusive interview, Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com asks Colin Bennett, co-owner of the Gwinllan Conwy Vineyard with his wife, to tell us more about the business. Filmed in the vineyard on 8 February 2020, Colin explains how the company has grown, what types of grapes they grow and wine they produce, how the wine compares to that of more established wine producing countries, and what goals they have for the future.

We discuss the tours, how the vineyard uses technology, what expansion plans they have, and what they do when it is time to pick the grapes. All that and much, much more in the FHD video. http://www.asiatraveltips.com/news20/...
