DJ Wines is a small, intimate winery set in an idyllic rural location overlooking the historic village church at Monk Soham, Here you will find me making delicious crafted wines and liqueurs from quality fruit. Edged by an avenue of cherry trees the building is only about the size of a tennis court, but I produce 10,000 bottles per year.
Being a winery only, no rows of vine will be found here as all fruit is bought in, mostly from East Anglian fruit suppliers. I will take you step by step through the process to making my delicious range of seven wines, seven liqueurs and my Monks Mead. I use a combination of traditional and modern techniques, many of which a home brewer will recognise, but on a much larger scale. The small on site laboratory helps me control quality.
During the visit I will also share some of the more humorous moments and the many trials and tribulations of setting up, what many people claim, is a dream business. You will be assured of a warm welcome!
