Overview
More
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.

A fascinating tour on foot of the vineyards and some of the production areas led by John Rawlings. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions courteously and clearly. The tasting was as described - three wines, as 30ml samples, which were delicious.More
