Our Story

About Us


From 2008

Richard and Siw Evans bought Llaethliw in 2008. Both are local to the area having been brought up in the Teifi and Aeron valleys. They have two children Megan and Jac. The Vineyard idea came to Richard on an inspiration after delving into the diversification of farming and climate change. Jac then completed a Viticulture course 2010-2012 at Plumpton college and returned home to manage the vineyard.


The first 8500 vines were planted in 2009 and Llaethliw has continued to grow ever since!

To Today

Since 2012 the Vineyard has continued to expand, not only with an additional 10,000 vines being planted, but also Jac and his wife Charley built their home on the vineyard in 2020.

Llaethliw welcomed its first pest control employee Jet the Cocker Spaniel in 2010 followed by her assistant Bernie the Bernedoodle in 2020. 

Today Llaethliw is home to over 15,000 vines, 2 families and 2 very happy dogs! 


We are proud to produce our range of Still and Sparkling wines along with our cider, Hansh.
