Owner description: Our family owned vineyard was established in 1972 and we produce award-winning red, white and sparkling English wine. We recently opened a new visitors centre with an enlarged cafe and retail shop and a fantastic viewing balcony overlooking 18 acres of vines. Why not come along and enjoy breakfast or lunch with friends and sample our wines? You can also book a guided tour & tasting (variety of dates and times available) or perhaps experience one of our popular wine masterclasses on a Saturday? We also run special events throughout the year, including fine-dining evenings and summer evening tours.

As a Christmas present for my boyfriend who is interested in different wines I brought a voucher for the vineyard tour and tasting with cream tea. Firstly the cream tea was amazing, the scones were beautifully made and we greedily helped ourselves to seconds and thirds for my boyfriend even though the were huge and filling we wanted more! Moving on ,the wine tour was very interesting for myself who knew nothing about the process and my boyfriend was able to question the guide and she was quite knowledgeable with her answers despite only being a student and stilly studying the process. When it came to the tasting we agreed our favourite was the sparking rosé. And we were intrigued by a sparking red we had never seen before. It was a wonderful day out and we were very lucky with the weather on our side. We would recommend bolney to our friends and family and if we lived closer we would be regulars for cream tea.

Just had a fantastic morning and experience at the Bolney Wine estate, from the moment we arrived everyone was so friendly and approachable , to top it all Alan our tour guide and wine expert was superb, friendly, knowledgable and humorous , and knew how to engage and keep us all involved. It was great to hear the history of this family run vineyard , and even better to learn of the love and care that goes into making top quality wine. Thank you Alan for a great time, and thanxs Julie for my pressie, love you loads x

I've been here a few times and whether you want breakfast, brunch or a good lunch then you will find lovely fresh cooked food with some modern twists! The fish finger sandwich is made with proper goujons, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs a delight and the cakes and bread are yummy! Makes a nice change from a pub lunch!

We had a very good tour and lunch. Alan, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and humorous . We learnt a great deal about wine making in general and how the Bolney vineyard has developed.
The wine tasting was very good and the light lunch most enjoyable.
If you like wine and want to know more about how it is produced etc I would recommend this tour to anyone.
