Visitors are welcome by appointment here at the vineyard. We offer a range of options for English wine tasting. Our conservatory is suitable for small groups of up to eight, and is wheelchair friendly.
Wine tasting and purchase are only available to those aged over 18 years, but accompanied children are welcome to join vineyard tours. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome, but please arrange this in advance so we can confine the vineyard hens to their run.
A) Book onto a vineyard tour and tutored wine tasting with Laura Hadland, the food writer from Thirst Media, charged at £16.50 per person. These run approximately monthly on weekend afternoons, and suit those wanting to come individually or in couples. All tickets for these events must be booked through DesignMyNight.
2019 events will be held with on the following afternoons: Sunday 26 May; Saturday 29 June; Saturday 27 July; Wednesday 14 August; Saturday 24 August; Sunday 8 September.
B) Contact us to pop over, stroll around the vineyard with a map, then buy wine (without a tasting)
C) Arrange a small group of up to eight friends for a full vineyard tour + wine tasting outside or in the conservatory. You buy wine at RRP for the tasting, and a minimum spend is applicable. You are welcome to bring your own picnic, as wine tastings go well with food! Cutlery/crockery provided. Day and time to be mutually convenient.
Finally, private tutored wine tastings can also be arranged for groups at a mutually convenient date. Please contact us to discuss date and cost.
