Best wine tasting experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was a birthday gift from my partner, and what a surprise. This vineyard is within Leicestershire in Rothley and how wonderful to see award winning English Wine being produced locally.

The experience was wonderful and the welcoming from Liz and her volunteers was truly superb. Their knowledge and understanding of good wine was truly inspiring and great way of learning of their wine.

The wines are a delight and the whole experience of tasting, touring was great to see and taste.

A truly fantastic experience.

We had a great evening, Liz was a wonderful hostess.
We had a tour of the vineyard, followed by English fizzy wine by the lake and finally a picnic in the gazebo.
Great great evening

Hidden gem
Aug 2021 • Couples
Mesmerized at this hidden gem! We had a private tour with owner Liz whom was a fantastic host and very knowledgeable in this field, we got to try a selection of award winning wines which were all wonderful. We were free to walk through the vineyard & enjoy our picnic down by the jetty- a very romantic set up! Was a great anniversary celebratory treat!

Hidden Gem!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Visited here on a Friday evening for the ‘Safari Tour’. Despite the weather not being on our side we had an unforgettable evening. Tasting different wines in different parts of the vineyard finishing with a picnic we brought with us which Liz kindly set up the conservatory for due to the rain along with more wines to taste. The wine is absolutely gorgeous and as 3 couples we all had a fantastic time and will definitely be back!!

Fabulous experience in a hidden gem
Jul 2021 • Friends
A wonderful experience. I came here for my hen do and Liz made us feel so relaxed and welcome. The tour was really interesting and the wine tasting was brilliant. The wines were all absolutely delicious and we all can’t wait to come back again. The location was absolutely beautiful and we felt transported out of Leicestershire.
I will certainly return to try another one of the tasting experiences and I shall recommend this to friends and family.

Thank you again to Liz for such a wonderful time.

Lovely wine tasting experience
May 2021 • Couples
A few on our door step We had a fantastic experience taking the wine tasting tour. Liz made us feel very welcome, was really interesting to learn about the process whilst sipping a welcoming drink!

Lovely tour of the vineyard and great tasting session afterwards, sitting in the lovely garden with the chickens pecking around us! ☺️

We don’t know much about wine but still had a great time, would recommend for all! Thank you Liz & team.

Tete a Tete Tasting
May 2021 • Couples
What a gem! We had no idea that this place even existed so it was such a wonderful discovery for us.

We did the Tete a Tete wine tasting experience to celebrate my husband’s 40th and we had such a wonderful afternoon - the glorious sunshine also helped here! Although even in cooler temperatures it would be a lovely experience I’m sure.

Liz is a wonderfully welcoming host and was so endearing to us. Liz set us at ease immediately and it was great to hear about and her and her husband’s passion for making Leicestershire wine.

The wine itself was very good - (who knew that was possible being in Leicestershire and not the south of France!) - So much so that we purchased some before we left.

The main attraction of this experience was the privacy, it felt very special to wander around a vineyard alone and then make our way to the jetty to enjoy a chilled bottle of their finest fizz. We were not rushed and felt we had all the time in the world to soak in the sun, the location and enjoy the wine at our leisure.

The setting is stunning and it was a wonderful way to grab some ‘us’ time and celebrate in style.

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend as something different to do.

Vineyard tour was wonderful.
Sep 2020
It began with a great talk from Steve about how the vineyard began and then had a tour around the vineyard. A very interesting tour detailing the process of their wine making. It ended with Laura giving a talk about tasting and flavours of each wine. A very enjoyable experience and would highly recommend it. All covid saf.

Superb Wine Tasting Tour
Sep 2020
Evening wine tasting & tour of the beautiful Rothley Wine Estate was a superb treat. Pt1 included opening wine tasting with Steve who had a great sense of humour to match his knowledge of the estate and wine making, lovely opening to the evening putting the group at ease and making for a comfortable event. Tour of the vineyard, so much to see & enjoy - just stunning. Pt2 - wine tasting with Laura was beautifully set in the vineyard with grouping to accommodate Covid distancing. Laura’s knowledge of wine is obviously extensive and she articulated this in a wonderfully warm and enjoyable way, the group was relaxed & the wine.....well .....delicious and elegant sum it up for me. This was a great evening & thoroughly recommended.

Wine Tasting Trip
Aug 2020 • Friends
Fantastic welcome by Steve who was really friendly and chatty (and the chickens) welcomed with a beautiful glass of elderflower wine before he talked us the process and took us round the vineyard giving us lots of interesting info, the grounds were lovely. He was great fun! Then Laura led our wine tasting part and she was excellent, well informed, highly intelligent and super friendly (not pretentious at all when you imagine wine tasting experts). The wine was incredible, I'm not a big wine drinker but all 5 we tried were so good I bought a bottle of each! BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for a lovely evening!
