As a working vineyard and winery we offer visitors a genuine experience of winemaking. Our relaxed, fun and informative tours take visitors through the art and science behind winemaking, before a tutored tasting of our award-winning current releases in our Tasting Room. All our tour options are available as gift vouchers. Please note, we do not accept under 18’s on our vineyard and winery tours. Children are welcome to explore our vineyard and woodland trail accompanied by an adult.

The Tasting Room is open 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday throughout the year and 11am to 4pm on Sundays during the growing season.  Tastings through a flight of four of our award-winning sparkling wines cost £5 per person and take around 30 minutes.  We have daily tasting sessions which can be booked in advance or just pop in on the day.
