Meet the WineMaker Awards Tour

An intimate tour of the winery and 2-way conversation with the winemaker with wine-flight, tastings of all our IWSC award-winning beverages, grazing platters and more.

This exclusive experience is a fantastic way to experience La Mare Wine Estate’s Winery and Distillery. It is ideal for those that have a more-than-average interest in wine and how it is made. Each tour will take a deep dive into the winemaking process, a look at the equipment that is used, and will include a wine tasting flight with the winemaker and grazing platter. The tour is “conversational” so attendees get all their wine questions answered by the pros.


A Warm Welcome Awaits

Upon arriving at the vineyard you will be greeted by either Managing Director Tim Crowley, Head Winemaker Jordi Sanvicens Moreno or Vineyard Manager Andrew Smith.

After a chilled glass of La Mare’s silver IWSC award-winning Branchage Prestige Sparkling Dry Méthode Traditionnelle Fine Cider,  you’ll take a stroll around the vines and discover the different varieties, the terroir and the lifecycle of the vine.


The Winery

Moving on to the winery, you’ll learn about the production methods while enjoying a tasting of La Mare’s white, rosé and award-winning red wine followed by a tour of the Alembic Charentais Cognac Still.

Distillery Tour

There will also be the opportunity to learn how we produce our refreshing Branchage Cider and how it is distilled to make Jersey Apple Brandy and other spirits in our Alembic Charentais Cognac Still.


Grazing Plates & Wine

Finally, you will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a platter of cheeses, olives, griddled vegetables and charcuterie with half a bottle of La Mare wine of your choice while chatting with our expert. (Vegan options available)

This opportunity is perfect for aspiring winemakers, hobbyists, or for those that have a more-than-average interest in wine and how it is made. 

Expect to learn a great deal about the process and equipment, along with your tasting and a few laughs along the way.
