New outlets now stocking MV Wines…

It’s been a busy month here at MV Winery…..lots of interest in selling our artisan wines from new outlets!

The PIG On The Beach hotel in Studland are about to stock Melbury Vale still and sparkling wines after their Sommelier paid the M V winery a visit for a tasting afternoon. So if you out on the coast, call in to The Pig and have a glass of something chilled from your local Dorset Winery paired with their sumptuous dishes in their stunning restaurant!

The new Chettle Village Store opened on 1st December and looks amazing. Well worth a visit for all the amazing produce they offer – especially those delicious pies! Now stocking Melbury Vale still and sparkling wines. Keeping it local!

The Bell Inn at Wylye and sister pub The Carriers Arms are the latest pubs to stock Melbury Vale wines. Go and try out their new menu with a glass of cool MV!

Covid 19 Site Closure – Update 2021

Sadly, due to Covid 19 regulations, we are now closed until late February 2021, when we hope to be able to reopen the winery and vineyard for tours and tastings as planned.

You can still order wine from our webshop for delivery or collection on a Friday or Saturday morning; and purchase gift vouchers which can be emailed to you, which are valid for 12 months. Please visit our shop on this website.

We will review the situation in mid February and if you do already have a tour booked for late Feb/ March 21, we will contact you in good time if we have to postpone your tour in light of the pandemic regulations.

Thank you for your patience. Clare and the Melbury Vale Team
