Darley Abbey Wines/Bar/Distillery
You can now book the wine bar inside, or outside although the hope is that with an extended inside area now you should just be able to turn up and get a table. Wine tastings will start again once the restrictions lift fully. Our wine shop is still closed for now, although you can still order online for collection/delivery.
Whilst a wine merchant by trade (Est. 2007); in recent years we have added a wine bar with a couple of fires roaring throughout the winter & a 200 year old courtyard which we open up each spring. It is a fairly bustling place full of like-minded souls enjoying a good glass of something, in good company with great music.
We serve fresh hand-made pizza straight from our pizzeria next door in the courtyard.
Both in the wine bar, and our wine shop in the adjacent building, there is inevitably a focus on wine with around 100 wines on the list at any one time. We also have a small but interesting range of Beer (with 3 on tap), and many an artisan spirit. If you are a fan of Whisky then the ‘Cage Of Age’ may be of interest!
We have year-round wine tastings (2-3 tastings a month) which are now housed in our wine shop. There’s always at least a couple of hours of informative fun to be had. Most see half a dozen interesting wines tasted alongside accompanying Charcuterie.
We have recently acquired a distillery licence to produce our own Darley Abbey Distillery spirits. Our copper still is currently on its travels from Portugal & we are excited to have our own Darley Abbey Distillery Gin available from Summer 2021.
For all of the above & probably more; you can find us imbibing away in ‘The Stables’ (built in 1805) within the historic UNESCO Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site.
