Visit to Isle of Wight vineyard recommended

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays who have an interest in wine have been advised to take a trip to a vineyard during their stay on the island.

According to an article for the Suite 101 website by James Graham, there are 400 vineyards located mostly in the south-east of the UK and they represent a great opportunity for a day out.

The writer added that it is no surprise there are few vineyards in the north, given that grapes require good weather and the right amounts of heat and sunshine to prosper.

He singled out the Rosemary Vineyard, which can be found at Smallbrook Lane in Ryde on the Isle of Wight as being particularly worth visiting.

"Visitors are invited to stroll around the vines, enjoying the surrounding views and discovering the different varieties grown at the vineyard," Mr Graham said.

Until March, the vineyard is open from 10:00 to 16:00 GMT Monday to Saturday and opens an hour later on Sunday.
