About Abbey Cellars:
There is a lot to be said for just loving wine. Loving the tradition, the process, the idea, the taste, the sight, the feeling, the sharing. The experience. It was love of wine that brought the Haworth family to develop and run their own single estate family owned vineyard.
With great food at the Abbey Cellar Door, and beverages available by the glass or bottle, they are open Thursday to Sunday, 11am-5pm.
