Myself and a friend had pre booked using our travelzoo voucher and we had a lovely afternoon learning more about how the wine was made and had a lovely tasting session at the end. If you are in the area and would like something different and original to do then this is well worth a visit.

This is not a tour. It is a lecture first of all standing outside, and then inside the building where the wine is made with nothing working or illustrating what you are being told. We were not even taken to see a vine growing. I consider it a complete waste of £8.00 each, even with the (miniscule) portions for the... More

Hilary and Richard gave a most informative tour. There are two, one on viticulture (growing grapes!) and the wine making..the second is shorter and just concentrates on the production of English sparkling and still wine. I did the shorter one and Hilary guided us through the process with a light informative talk that was full of fascinating information but short... More

My wife and I both visited this vinyard tour 'on spec'. We did not regret it. We took the short tour (didn't actually go and see the vines) and were not disappointed. We had a most interesting, humourous and informative time, including some interesting questions and pleasant tastings. Thank you Hilary for sharing Richard's and your dream and how it... More

My husband and I visited on a Sunday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was very informative and very interesting. Questions were welcomed and we learnt all about how to make wine from the beginning to the end. We finished with some tasting and the wines white and red, both still and sparkling were very good. All in all... More

After a fabulous summer we visited on a rain sodden day. However the owner, Richard gave a wet weather programme for about 16 guests. We had a really informative slide show detailing how they established the vineyard and all you could want to know about the English wine scene. A very knowledgable and interesting talk. We then had a tour... More

Great tour and tasting. Perhaps a bit expensive for the children, although every effort was made to make it interesting for them too

We are very glad that you found the tour so interesting. However we are sorry to hear that you thought our concessionary rates were expensive for children. We do not charge for pre-school age and then those aged 5-17 are £4.00 which represents 53% of the adult rate and accounts for the fact that they are not able to taste... More

Bought a voucher earlier in the year for a tour and wine tasting visit. Went today, perfect weather and a lovely setting. The owners really know their stuff and Hilary gave an interesting and often amusing talk and answered all questions easily. The wine was lovely and we purchased a few bottlers. My only criticism is we would have liked... More
