The best way to explore the Tamar Valley is to leave the highways and wander through the country roads. There, you will discover small villages nestled on the riverbank with orchards, crafts and antiques shops, eateries, picnic areas and vineyards.
With over 21 vineyards forming the Tamar Valley Wine Route, you can tailor your own wine and food experience. Most vineyards are open regularly for visitors with wine tastings and cellar-door sales. Some have their own restaurants. Why not sample fresh farm produce from one of the many farm gates all over the valley?
