St Martin's Vineyard is the most southerly in the South Western area, actually within the latitudes
described in old textbooks as being 'the furthest point north at which it is possible to grow
grapes!'. The 3 acre vineyard is planted on sandy loam soils on a south facing slope nar to the Higher Town Quay.
The first harvest at St. Martin's was in 2000, with 150 bottles produced. Within 2 years this should have increased to commercial proportions. By that time, the owner will be living on site.
From St. Martin's Higher Town Quay, turn right across Pool Green towards English island. The vineyard is on the left about 400 yards from the quay.
