We are always looking to improve the vineyard and develop further, our next focus is the building of our new visitor centre with shop, café and meeting/tasting room and new equipment for the bottling side of the brewery.

We work with our local community by holding regular events and fundraisers to encourage more visitors and new people in to the area to promote both ourselves and the village as a whole, our beers are regularly on the bar in the village pub.

Regularly meet and chat with other wine producers and share our experiences, advice and future ideas.

We continue to seek feedback from our customers to understand their views so we can maintain our high standards of customer service.

Support our chosen charities, our current main charity is Snappy York and through our events we also choose to support Yorkshire Air Ambulance, British Red Cross & Help for Heroes. We previously have chosen to support St Michaels Hospice, Guy Francis Bone Cancer & Cancer Research.

Our Vineyard

Yorkshire Heart vineyard was born from a love of making wine from the fruits found in hedgerows and gardens and a passion for growing plants.

In the early part of 2000 we planted 35 vines in our garden at Green Hammerton, 5 years later we had made our first official wine [to be called wine it has to be made from grapes], this inspired us to look at the possibility of planting on a commercial basis.

Our Brewery

We first opened our brewery doors at Yorkshire Heart in 2011. 

Following the success of our vineyard and winery we decided to look at expanding our business further & the link between making our own award winning English wines & brewing our own quality craft beers seemed a sensible and very exciting option as the team do like their beer!

Tastings, Tours and Events

With 10 acres of fantastic views of vines and natural beauty it’s not suprising that Yorkshire Heart’s tours and tastings have become very popular with different groups and organisations as well as a special parties & hen days out.

We offer tours for up to 50 people which can include a tour of the brewery as well as the vineyard, special evenings in the vineyard or even just a tasting if the weather turns against you.
