Food, wine and the journey it takes you on

Our trail starts from the city of Leeds before we head East towards the market town of Beverley and the coast. After exploring the vineyards in this area we head towards North Yorkshire taking the coastal roads or ambling through the Yorkshire Wolds.

Heading back inland across the North Yorkshire Moors we pass the lovely town of Malton before arriving in the historic city of York - an ideal and central location to explore all of the surrounding vineyards and sights.
