Bolney Wine Estate



In the heart of rural Sussex lies Bolney Wine Estate, one of England’s oldest and most beautiful vineyards. A three-generation family business led by Sam Linter, we have been guided by nature since 1972 when our first vines were planted.

Visit Bolney Wine Estate for a great day out. You can stroll where eight varieties of grapes (including Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) are grown and find out how - guided by nature and Sussex’s mild climate – we make some of the finest still and sparkling English wines on our welcoming, family-run estate. 

We have a state-of-the-art winery, which is fascinating even for non-wine drinkers, and a tasting room where all the fun of sampling happens. 

The setting is glorious, with views to the South Downs and an abundance of wildlife all around. If you come in the morning you might even spot roe deer slinking between the vines, and by afternoon in the summer the dragonflies will be out. 


We offer a range of tours.  These include The Taster Tour, the Sparkling afternoon Tea Tour (accompanied by a glass of sparkling Bolney Rose) and The Grand Gourmet Tour. Whichever tour you choose you will get to sample our lovely wines and on the Grand Gourmet Tour, along with a welcome drink of Bolney Bubbly and a tutored tasting of five wines, you end with a luxury seasonal buffet lunch. And don’t forget our Vineyard Trail, which are designed for all the family to enjoy.

Then there’s our Eighteen Acre Café that has a stunning viewing balcony overlooking the ripening vines. This really is the place to appreciate the setting with the fruits of our labours literally in your hands! All our food is locally sourced and our chef serves up scrumptious dishes for breakfast and lunch.  On Friday evenings, come and join us at our wine bar, serving our range of wines, plus a variety of beers and spirits and a selection of small dishes, championing local produce with culinary flair. On the first Friday of the month we also host a special event, such as our extremely popular live music nights that go with a swing with a glass of Bolney.


It’s hard to beat our Estate for a great day out. It’s great place for a spot of yummy lunch with guests or with the family (and we include the dog in that) or simply catching up with friends. We have a great kids menu and a fun vineyard trail for the children.
