Bolney Wine Estate


In the heart of rural Sussex, lies Bolney Wine Estate, one of England’s longest established vineyards.

Bolney Wine Estate, located in the village of Bolney, is situated on a hill which was part of the Butting Hill One Hundred. In 1972 the Estate was founded by Rodney and Janet Pratt, with just 3 acres of vines and a single grape variety.

From our humble beginnings, the vineyard has expanded to 39 acres with over 8 varieties grown on site, including Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, as well as a state-of-the-art winery. In the 1990s Samantha Linter (daughter of the founders) took charge of the winemaking and since then we have won numerous international awards for both our still and sparkling wines. Today three generations of the family are involved in the business.

For those wanting to visit, there is plenty to do at Bolney Wine Estate. Whether you want to explore the vineyards, discover more about winemaking in England, get involved in a wine tasting or enjoy lunch on our stunning viewing balcony overlooking the vines- there is something for everyone!


We run three types of tours throughout the year: Our standard Taster Tour, our Sparkling Afternoon Tea Tour and our Grand Gourmet lunch tour. All tours include a guided tour of the estate, vineyard and winery and a tasting of a selection of the wines we produce. Tours can be booked in advance or bought as a gift. Please see our website for more information. Please note that we are only able to admit over 18s to our tours, but children are very welcome in our Café and on our vineyard trail.


Come and enjoy lunch, breakfast or an artisan tea or coffee in our Café and relax in the beautiful surroundings. Alternatively you can stretch your legs and take a stroll through the Vineyard. Our vineyard trail is perfect for children and we charge just £3 for a trail map. We also supply colouring sheets in our Café and board games for older children.
