Sian Roberts from Loving Welsh Food has been running food tours and cooking workshops in Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan for just over 5 years.   “Guests always enjoy our traditional recipes – simple to cook and fabulous to eat!   They love finding out about our food heritage and culture, as well as trying to pronounce some of our challenging Welsh words!” 

Whitecastle Vineyard is situated in the beautiful countryside of Monmouthsire near the market town of Abergavenny.  Having purchased the 12 acre small holding in 1995, Robb and Nicola Merchant converted the milking parlour into their home a year later. Robb tells us all about their dream of owning a vineyard and how it became a reality. Check out the website to see their range of wines and vineyard activities.
