    Guided Tastings typically last between 1 – 2 hours, depending on which package you choose.

    We will talk you through each wine, how to taste, where the grapes are grown, how it is made and give you a few tips on selecting wine in a shop or restaurant.

    Each guest also receives winemaker notes on each of the wines sampled and their own Lyme Bay Winery tote bag.

    After the tasting, you can have a browse of the Cellar Door shop and enjoy a 10% guest discount on any Lyme Bay goodies that you buy on the day!

    We normally require two weeks’ notice for a Guided Tasting, however, we can sometimes accommodate you with less notice, so please just email us  [email protected].uk with your preferred date.  Please note that sadly due to “no-shows”, tastings of more than three people are subject to pre-payment.

    There are plenty of reasons to visit our Cellar Door in Shute, nestled in the rolling green hills of East Devon’s Axe Valley. Taste of the West awarded us a coveted Gold medal in 2022 for the Cellar Door on account of “the friendly, knowledgeable and passionate staff who guide guests through the range of drinks – with samples galore!”

    Steve and Sarah – the aforementioned wonderful staff – fling open the Cellar Door every Monday to Saturday 9.30am-4.30pm (closed for staff lunch 12.30-1) and Sunday 11am-3pm where visitors can sample many of our products and ask our knowledgeable staff any questions you like. Just five miles from the coast, the Lyme Bay Winery Cellar Door is a stone’s throw away from the quaint town of Axminster, and numerous East Devon delights.
