The area’s high mountain pastures, hillsides and lush green valleys produce an abundance of high-quality meat, vegetables, and dairy products whilst, Wales’ rich coastal waters produce fabulous seafood. You will find award-winning vineyards, breweries, and distilleries and fine butchers, bakers, and cheesemakers in this little corner of North Wales. On this tour, we recommend you go ‘light’ on breakfast to leave plenty of room for the day’s tastings!
Wales is globally famous for the quality of its lamb and beef – and some of the best are produced on the northern slopes of Snowdonia. Meet a man passionate about the land his family has farmed for 300 years and the iconic Welsh Lamb and Welsh Black Beef that this inhospitable landscape produces. On this immersive hill farm tour, you will discover the life of a hill farming family, hearing about their history and traditions and their joys and struggles. Two of the highlights of this tour are watching the sheepdogs at work and seeing a sheep shearing demonstration.
Visit the Welsh vineyard that is helping to put British wines on the international map. Take a guided tour through the vines then sample the award-winning white, red and sparkling wines that it produces in the shadows of Snowdonia’s mountains and castles. Alongside the wine tasting, you can sample local cheeses, pates, chutneys, and other preserves.
Did you know Oysters and Mussel’s grow naturally in the tidal waters of this part of North Wales? For over 200 years, traditional and sustainable methods have been used to harvest these wild shellfish. Compared to their commercially grown brethren, local shellfish are sweeter, tastier, and usually fresher – perfect to pair with a glass of award-winning Welsh sparkling wine!
Depending on the season and your taste, take a leisurely lunch at one of a small number of specially picked restaurants that champion the best local produce available. Let us know your choice of food – meat, seafood or even vegan – and we will pick the restaurant that best matches your choice.
Discover one of the few Gin distilleries in Wales. Infused with botanical ingredients from across North Wales, globally awarded gins are expertly crafted using Welsh water, filtered from the mountains of Snowdonia.
