Our Vineyard Accommodation Out of Season: No Frosty Reception Here

Our Vineyard Accommodation Out of Season: No Frosty Reception Here

Swollen grey skies; crisp air; frost glittering on foliage: there’s something undeniably magical about autumn and winter at Three Choirs.

Over at the vineyard, the vines stand stark and spikey. It’s not usually what comes to mind when we think of vineyards, but it’s captivating nonetheless. The image of uniform green rows snaking across scorched earth, and jewel-like grapes dangling beneath leaves is an enduring one. But it’s not the full story.

Staying in our vineyard accommodation out of season has its own unique beauty – and function. Harvest ends in October, when the last of the autumn leaves drop. Underneath stands the bare vine, gnarled and twisted over time, like a creature from a fairytale. Once the vines are pruned, the natural contours of the land reveal themselves too. Come midwinter, we are privy to a whole new world previously hidden by growth.

Vines change in appearance several times in their annual cycle. They encounter different stages throughout the year. Each stage is of equal importance and intrigue, and understanding the vine’s journey helps us better understand wine.

Indeed, autumn and winter are the dormant seasons for the vineyard. But as desolate as things seem above ground, below, activity continues. As their trunks and branches rest for the season, the vines’ roots are hard at work. By soaking up and storing nutrients from the soil, they protect the vine from the cold and prepare it for its spring awakening.

Out of season at the vineyard is just as – if not more – enchanting as summer. Waking up to frost-dusted vines, sparkling in the early-morning sun is a remarkable experience. Often, a mist in the valley gradually rises to reveal the landscape – and you can watch it all from the cosy cocoon of your room.

Select from luxurious, wooden-framed lodges or tranquil, vineyard view rooms, both offering different views over the valley. Our spacious vineyard view rooms come with their own private, south-facing patios on which to enjoy a Three Choirs bottle.
