We came in February, and had a private wine tasting and small tour of the winery - given it was only two of us and the time of year, there wasn't much to see, but it was interesting to go into the bottling unit! The wine tasting was excellent, and the lady who took us through a number of wines... More

We had a really enjoyable afternoon on the wine tour. Our guide was really knowledgeable and we really loved learning about how the wine is made from start to finish. The tasting was great too, really well done. We wished that we had to time to eat in the restaurant after seeing all the reviews but hopefully we will get... More

I was given a birthday present of an 'Experience' at Chapel Down Winery. Unfortunately I couldn't make any of the dates available before the vouchers ran out. I Phoned Chapel Down and they could not have been more helpful; they re-arranged the visit so now, more than a year after the gift, we finally got to experience the 'Experience'. Started... More

See the grapes growing. See how the wine is made. Taste the end product. Chapel Down is Britains largest wine producer, with an International reputation for quality wines. Had a good tasting, outside under the shade of trees. Tried several sparkling wines. All had different characteristics, but all were clean, fully integrated with a good balance of sweetness (or lack... More

The window dressing is elegant: In the bar, aged wine barrel planks are shaped into woven wall art and dramatically offset with accent light; a copper and blonde wood bar counter, a few small black tables surrounded by bespoke high-back chairs upholstered in tweed blazers. In the restaurant moss green walls offset chrome and glass chandeliers; a unique wine collection... More

Easy to find, plenty of parking..........though we got a taxi from the William Caxton where we were staying in Tenterden about 2 miles away...........£5 each way. Our guide David made the whole experience so worthwhile, great knowledge, personality, answered every question regardless. Tour took just over an hour then it was tasting time, prima, an afternoon very well spent and... More

Had a great afternoon with girlfriend and parents at the Chapel Down winery. The tour was very informative - compares very well to tours I have done in France, much happier to answer questions and the love of the company is obvious from all you talk to. Finished off with a variety of tastings (all excellent wines, and great examples... More
