We visited on 19 May with a NADAS group. It was all very well organised. We were split into 2 groups, one went round the vineyard while the other started the wine tasting. The guides were very informative, knowledgeable and approachable. We tasted 5 wines and learnt a lot. After the tour we had coffee and cake in their lovely... More

We had a great tour of the vineyard and got to see the full end to end process of the wines. Well worth the visit.

We visited as part of a group of 40, having been to Godinton House in the morning (joint tickets available). This was a really different day, and the winery was as fascinating as the morning had been, but clearly for different reasons. We had a really good guide (Chris?)who took us through how to taste 4 different wines before we... More

Very clean, tidy and well laid out and that's just the vineyard! Buzzy shop and great restaurant upstairs. Tastings are interesting and interactive too which is what you always want with wine. A proper adult afternoon out.

We were given a wine tasting tour as a Christmas gift and booked it for April. We stayed in Tenterden which is about 10mins away in a cab (£7). We arrived for the 3pm tour, there is around 20 to a tour and you start by looking at the vines, then on to the winery and back to the shop... More

I visited Chapel Down yesterday for a vineyard tour and winetasting. What a superb and enjoyable couple of hours. Our guide Suzi was exceptional. Her knowledge is stunning, a true expert in winemaking and interpreting wine flavours and characteristics. But aside of all her knowledge was a friendly and bubbly delivery style and great rapport with the group which made... More

Had a great wine tasting experience at Chapel Down. Lunch was excellent (if tiny) and the wines are lovely. Our guide, Dave, was fab - knowledgeable and good fun. Highly recommended day out.

I booked the tour for myself and my husband on a beautiful sunny Saturday. The tour was led by the extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional David. The tour was over an hour of vineyards and inside the winery to learn how white and reds are made. Really interesting. By the end I was dying for a glass of the delicious... More
