Mersea Island Vineyard

Mersea Island Vineyard

Mersea Island lies between the estuaries of the Blackwater and Colne rivers, about nine miles south of Colchester.

The present Mersea Island Vineyard was established in 1985. Today there are about ten acres, five grape varieties, producing some twenty thousand bottles each year.

Legend has it that the Romans grew grapes on the Island and with its gently sloping, south facing fields, the vineyard is still the perfect place for vines. Mersea Island vineyard offers a range of white wines from very dry to when conditions on the Vineyard have allowed it sweet desert wine. There is even a superb sparkling wine, produced using the authentic ‘Methode Champagnoise’ secondary fermentation process.
