Spotted this vineyard on the map (the bunch of grapes icon is the clue!) when we were going to Wingham for a short break. Have been to Carr Taylor's (good) and Denbies (commercialised), but this is completely different - low-key and genuine. Managed to be informal, but professional. We were shown round by Philip, enthusiastic and informative. We learnt a lot about the whole process - and it was just the 2 of us - and no charge!! Included wine tasting. Though of course we bought some bottles (apparently, all sales done over the counter, nothing online or mail-order - but the product sells itself). Well worth a visit.

We went to Barnsole first on a visit to the area before moving. We went thinking it would be interesting but believing the wine would be terrible. How wrong we were! The brothers are great and very informative and the wine they make is great too! The red in particular is very drinkable and the medium white is much dryer than expected and also nice chilled. We took some home for a christening party and didnt tell the guests it was 'english' until after they commented on the great wine - they were impressed too. Definitely worth a visit.

I have been buying wine from this excellent vineyard for 3 years or so. They produce 2 lovely white wines and a lovely red. The owners are very knowledgable, and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
