Very enjoyable afternoon of wine.
Dec 2021 • Couples
We were given the tour voucher as a gift. The Kingscote staff were amazing in extending its use because of Covid. The tour itself took 90 minutes, mainly outside and was a great afternoon. We were given a glass of wine at the start of the tour and then throughout the 90 minutes we then tasted 4 more different wines. The area is great for walking and there is a lovely shop and cafe. Our tour guide, Lesley was very knowledgeable and provided us with some great information about the Vineyard and how it was first started. Very enjoyable afternoon with great wines and a lovely ploughman’s for lunch afterwards in the cafe attached to the vineyard. Would highly recommend.

Very enjoyable afternoon
Nov 2021 • Couples
We were given the tour voucher as a free gift with wine we had previously purchased from Kingscote. It had actually expired at the end of October but the very helpful staff had extended it for us. The tour itself took 90 minutes, mainly outside and was very enjoyable from start to finish. The weather was on our side which made it more enjoyable. We had 5 generous tastings of the vineyards wines. The area is great for walking and there is a lovely shop and cafe. Our tour guide, Lynda, was simply lovely. She was very knowledgable and professional. She kept the tour interesting throughout.
Overall a very good experience and even if we had paid ( £15 each) it would have been good value.

Wine tasting
Nov 2021 • Couples
My husband was given this vineyard wine tasting as a gift for his birthday. Unfortunately our guide fell ill and we’re seen by Amber. Amber was so knowledgeable about all the wines and there origins. Although the tour had to be adapted to W wine tasting session we thoroughly enjoyed it and the sparkling wine presented to us. Thank you Amber.

Excellent Tour and Wine Tasting
Sep 2021
Received a voucher as an Anniversary present for Tour and Wine Tasting at Kingscote Estate and Vineyard.
From the very start it was a fabulous tour, with very appreciated and informative tasting. Extremely interesting and professionally done.

Have visited a number of vineyards, including overseas and can honestly say, without a shadow of a doubt this was certainly one of the best.

Our Tour Guide Ellie was superb, and her knowledge astounding.

Would highly recommend a visit to Kingscote.

Superb visit and a hidden gem of a place

Having “discovered” the vineyard during lockdown we returned again for a tour and tasting. Our guide Linda was fantastic and both incredibly knowledgeable as well as customer focused. The vineyard and the winemaking process is interesting and she explained everything incredibly well. An absolute asset to the team here!
The wine is great too!

A lovely afternoon touring the vineyard and trying 5 of the wines. Our host was very informative, fun and enthusiastic. All the family really enjoyed it.
We started with a cream tea but lunch can be an option.
