Toby and his family live in the middle of Devon, in Winkleigh, where they own and run Ten Acres Vineyard Camping and a large orchard. Before moving back to Devon, Toby worked in Hungary for some years, where he met a local businessman, Jozsef. Relaxing over a glass of home-made wine one day, they realised that British people didn’t have access to well-made wine, juice or cider making equipment which doesn’t break the bank and are traditional in that part of Europe. At the same time Hungarian and other Central European engineering firms needed markets in the West to help them survive. So pressfruit.co.uk was born!
Toby makes his own award-winning English wine, as well as apple juice and cider for his family. He’ll be happy to help with advice, not only on what to buy, but also on all other aspects of the three processes.
Please come and visit Ten Acres Vineyard, if you would like to view and handle the equipment before making your decision. If you let us know beforehand and come and collect your equipment, we will give you a discount of the whole of the carriage price!
Ten Acres Vineyard is situated on the south-facing slope of Winkleigh’s wartime airfield. Planting started in 2008 and continues today using cuttings from the original vines.
Ten Acres’ wines are fermented and bottled here in our small cellar/winery. Tours of the winery are available for individuals or small groups. Please visit our website www.tenacresvineyardcamping.co.uk for details.
