Móinéir Wine Tasting and Winery Tour

Sat 15th October 2022 | 2 pm | Unit 8, Newtown Business and Enterprise Centre, Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow
Wicklow Way Wines (Winery) is based at Newtownmountkennedy in County Wicklow

Set among other small businesses, just 30 minutes from Dublin, is Ireland’s first and only winery where wines from locally grown strawberries, blackberries and raspberries are created. Meet Brett, the co-founder and winemaker of Wicklow Way Wines, who has been featured on Nationwide, Ireland AM, and RTÉ One (the list goes on!), and allow him to sweep you away into the world of Móinéir! To kickstart the experience, Brett will guide you on your personalised tour of the winery (please note that our winery is a working winery where the wines are made, rather than a vineyard or farm).

As shown on Neven’s Irish Food Trails and Nationwide with Mary Kennedy, you will see where, why, and how our wines are sustainably made, and understand the care that goes into making small batches of these rare and unique wines, handcrafted from locally grown strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Depending on the time of year you may see a fermentation underway, and experience the fabulous colours, amazing aromas, and surprising sounds of the fermenting berry juices!

The wine tasting takes place in the tasting room overlooking the vats of wine. There you will taste and savour the Award Winning and mouth-watering, Móinéir Irish Strawberry, Blackberry and Raspberry Wines. You’ll experience the unique characteristics of each wine and understand how they differ from each other, and from all other wines on the market. Each wine is paired with Irish artisan cheeses or chocolate (vegan options available on request), selected to complement the unique characteristics of the three wines, while being wonderfully delicious, in their own right.

By the end of the tour and tasting, you will walk away with a new appreciation of Irish wine, wine tasting, food pairings and the dedication and passion that go into the whole process, from meadow to glass.

Tickets are €25.00 and can be booked here.
