La Mare Wine Estates
Established in 1972 and is set in the grounds of a wonderful 18th Century Jersey granite farmhouse, La Mare is Jersey’s only vineyard and distillery.
The estate itself is a fascinating combination of history and tradition. Alongside historic buildings and beautiful gardens, and extensive vineyards and orchards, there is a modern winery and distillery. The estate kitchens produce a wonderful array of Jersey produce.
It is possible to arrange a private tour which will take you through the winemaking and distilling process.
After a gentle stroll through the vines and orchard you are invited into the new winery where the winemaking process is explained. That is followed by a visit to the new Cognac-style distillery followed by a tasting of La Mare’s Jersey Wines and the famous Jersey Cream Liqueur or Jersey Apple Brandy. Weather permitting, tastings are hosted outside on the main lawn, by the farmhouse.
