Our Wines

our award winning wines

Like all good wines from around the world Pebblebed wines are an expression of our local Devon “Terroir”. The land and climatic conditions in this part of East Devon are well suited to grape growing and indeed grapes were grown nearby certainly in the middle ages and possibly by the Romans.

We grow a number of different grape varieties suited to Devon over an area of about 25 acres and particularly focus on vine varieties that ripen well and are disease resistant.  These include Seyval Blanc, Madeleine Angevine, Phoenix, Rondo Regent, Solaris and Pinot Noir. We work with great care and attention in the vineyard, applying sensible environmental practices and for a number of years were certified organic.  In the winery we apply a similar approach and great care with the aim of producing as “natural” a wines as possible.

We produce both Sparkling – made using the traditional or “Champagne” method and still white, rose and red. Please click on the pictures below to obtain a description of the wines and to purchase. Please note the correct wine vintage is in the descriptive text (the picture may show a different vintage).

Our wine history

Our first wine was from the Community Vineyard in 2002. This was named Dodo Tree after a tree on the skyline of the vineyard which resembled the extinct bird. The wine was well received and both the 2002 and 2003 wines won awards.

The first commercial vintage of Pebblebed Rosé 2004 caused a stir when it was a surprise winner of a prestigious Gold Medal in the English and Welsh Wine of the Year Competition, one of only a handful of Gold Medals presented.

Since our early vintages we have continued to produce award wining wines made predominantly from our own grapes.  In 2010 we built our own winery at Clyst St George and the winemaking has been expertly undertaken by Alex Mills who has a degree in Winemaking and Viticulture.

Our Sparklings have won top medals ant trophies in the South West Vineyards Association Awards in 2014 (white sparkling) and 2015 (rose sparkling).
