Our tours start with a walk around the beautiful 30 acre vineyard where you will learn about many of the challenges and joys of growing grapes for wine in England – including explanations on site selection, vine planting and vineyard management practices throughout the year.
We then continue to the Winery and Bottle Store to see the equipment used in making our wines with detailed explanations of the processes involved in both still and sparkling wine production providing an insight into what makes our wines so special. Lastly, we visit our Wine Tasting Room and Shop, situated in a renovated old Sussex dairy, for a tutored tasting of 4 of our current release wines including still, sparkling and fortified wines.
Uniquely, our Tours are led by either the owner, Alison, or a member of the wine making team, giving you unrivalled first hand experiences and in depth knowledge. To ensure an intimate and engaging experience we limit the size of our Tours to a maximum of 22 people.
