Top class tour of this little 16.5 acre English vineyard and a good tasting session, all made extra special by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the highly articulate lady owner. The five wines we tasted were good quality, but what we really learnt was that...More

A 'vote leave' flag greeted us at the gate which really set the tone. The winery was riddled with UKIP posters and leaflets. The owner/guide used her spurious science to conveniently deny the human impact on climate change. I found it much harder to enjoy...More

We saw the sign on the main road during a week-end stay in the area and drove up to the house. The lady who owns the vineyard with her husband opened up the sales site for us and we tasted red,white, rose` wines and some...More

My girlfriend and I turned up for a tour here recently (July 2015). It was beautiful weather and we were greeted by two gorgeous dogs, which funnily enough were our favourite breed - a fantastic start to what we hoped would be a great afternoon....More

We received a more welcoming response from the dogs than the owner, despite visiting on a day they were supposed to be open for visits. We were asked if we wanted to taste as none was open! Arrived in the "tasting room" only to find...More

I paid £12.50 for a two hour tour/wine-tasting - accompanied by two friends. The owners are passionate, and absolutely know their stuff. The vineyard itself is beautiful and, if you are a dog-lover, so are the two adorable hounds who defend the grounds from "pests"....More
