About

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 new Tasting Room with unrivalled views over the vineyard and the South Downs National Park, where you will enjoy a tutored tasting of 4 of our current releases including still, sparkling and fortified wines.
