Quoins is a small, family run vineyard, tucked away on the edge of the Cotswolds, near the World Heritage city of Bath. We produce just 3000 bottles a year of our award winning single variety wines.

The vineyard is one of only 6 organic vineyards in the UK, certified by the Soil Association.  No inorganic fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides are used, and the area is a haven for wildlife. The wine production process is certified organic, too, with additives, such as sulphites, tightly controlled.

We are open for groups by prior arrangement, or visit us at one of the open days and tastings held throughout the summer. These also include the chance to try some of  our unusual fruits.

You can buy the wines directly from the vineyard, from local shops or via the internet.

Interesting to hear that the preferred wine of the afternoon was the Madeleine Angevine 2013 rather than the Orion favoured by Waitrose. Quoins also had […]
