Meadow View Vineyard was planted in 2002 and benefits from the rich clay loams of the Vale of Glamorgan and the relatively frost free environment.

The firewood from Meadow View’s woodland in Cardiff is selectively and sustainably thinned.

The comparatively small size of Meadow View Vineyard allows for summer crop thinning which helps to ensure a healthy crop and maximise sugar levels.

Gwin y Fro is sold through local delicatessens and restaurants which helps to keep the carbon footprint of the operation as low as possible. For your nearest stockist call 02920 515552

The Seyval Blanc grape variety is extremely disease resistant and does not need to be sprayed for mildew and fungus. Therefore, it lends itself perfectly to pesticide-free grape production.

 

 

 

 

Vegetables

Asparagus and strawberries are supplied to local restaurants, shops and supermarkets and are grown without the use of pesticides at Meadow View.

 

Firewood

Meadow View’s woodland is comprised predominantly of ash trees and is selectively and sustainably thinned under the supervision of Coed Cymru, the Welsh arm of the Forestry Commission. The flora and fauna has been dramatically enhanced due to the increased light getting to the woodland floor.
Ash firewood is cut to the sizes required and delivered to customers’ homes in a range of quantities.

The Firewood Poem

Beechwood fires are bright and clear

If the logs are kept a year,

Chestnut’s only good they say,

If for logs ’tis laid away.

Make a fire of Elder tree,

Death within your house will be;

But ash new or ash old,

Is fit for a queen with crown of gold.

 

Birch and fir logs burn too fast

Blaze up bright and do not last,

It is by the Irish said

Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.

Elm wood burns like churchyard mould,

E’en the very flames are cold

But ash green or ash brown

Is fit for a queen with golden crown.

Poplar gives a bitter smoke,

Fills your eyes and makes you choke,

Apple wood will scent your room

Pear wood smells like flowers in bloom

Oaken logs, if dry and old

Keep away the winter’s cold

But ash wet or ash dry

A king shall warm his slippers by.
