Led by award-winning wine maker Kieron Atkinson, the vineyard tours give visitors the chance to learn all about the history of the 40-year-old site, which was once the most northerly in the world.

Tours last approximately one and a half hours and cost £10 per person, including wine tasting, a tour of the vineyard and learning about the cycle of the vineyard and wine-making process.

Public vineyard tours for 2016 will take place at 11am or 1.30pm on June 12, July 17 and September 11.
