More Info: Judith and Colin Dudley have been running Parva Farm vineyard since 1996. The vineyard was originally planted in 1979 with subsequent plantings in 1985 and 1989. By 1996 however, the vineyard had been sadly neglected so Colin & Judith had some hard work on their hands to bring it back into production. It was gradually pruned and cleared and re-staked over 4 years until in 2001 it produced the first good crop of grapes (approx. 5 tonnes). Some of the original plantings were deemed unable to be saved so the vineyard was reduced in size to about 2.5 acres. They now grow around 16 different grape varieties although the main varieties are Bacchus, Seyval Blanc, Muller Thurgau, Pinot Noir and Regent. They also produce Welsh mead, fruit wines and ciders.
