About
Our story began five decades ago in 1972, when our vines were first planted by Sam Linter’s parents, Rodney and Janet. Sam now heads up the family business, having inherited her parents’ love and passion for making award-winning still and sparkling English wines. If you are looking for an exciting day out in the heart of the Sussex countryside, then look no further than our charming vineyard. Why not pop in to enjoy a spot of breakfast or lunch at The Eighteen Acre, a picturesque location with stunning views across our vines. Or join us to experience the full journey from grape to glass on one of our tours & tastings, where you will be taken on a tour of our estate and then sample a selection of our award-winning wines. We also have an onsite shop where you can pick up some local produce, and of course your favourite Bolney wine, to enjoy at home.

The great Bolney experience. Whoop, whoop!
Dec. 2021
Today was a present to us from a work colleague - A wine tour, paired with local foods.

We expected a great welcome of course, and we certainly got that.

Our host Alex. He was informed, friendly and humorous.

He was unsure on how to answer one question from the group, but within minutes he had found the answer. Well done Mr A!

The whole experience was around 2 hours, with no big sales pitch during the tasting. As I said at the beginning, this was a present, So spening well over £100 on wine and gin, reflects how much we valued the visit.

We stayed for lunch - which was was absolutely fine. But I need to mention that the Burger meat was very dry, and the chutney inside the bun was over generous to say the least!

MY partners meal was fine.

But you need to focus on the overall experience right?

Great staff, hugely informative tour, super location and great wines.

A big shout out again to Alex and his boss Nick, making it a great day.

The venue, vineyard, and staff are all world class

Highly recommended

A great experience
Nov. 2021
We were bought the Tour of the Vineyard and wine tasting experience as a gift and had a wonderful time. Alex our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a good mixture of the history of Bolney Estate, the vineyards and the wine making process. He didn't baffle or bore us with too much of the scientific process, giving us just enough information to appreciate the process and difficulties of producing and making wine good wine in England and his little interjections of humour made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The setting is beautiful and the wine and food delicious, we would thoroughly recommend and visit and taste or two.

A great day out
Oct. 2021 • Friends
I'm from South Australia so have high expectations for a great winery, Bolney Estate made it feel like a bit of home. I'm not sure what was the best part - the friendly staff, exceptional service, amazing wines, delicious food or gorgeous scenery. We had a Sunday roast and can't wait to return for the wine tasting and tour. Highly recommend

Picturesque vineyard, delicious sparklers & great service.
Oct. 2021 • Friends
We visited several vineyards on a two day drive around West Sussex and Bolney was the stand out for venue, wine and service. The visitor centre is right among the vines and has a fabulous outdoor balcony as well as spacious cafe serving imaginative dishes from an open kitchen. The Blanc de Blancs was our favourite Sussex wine, it’s delicious. We had great service with the tasting and buying experience from a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable & helpful estate family member. Overall, it was a really good experience and will live on through the stash of wine we brought home.

A genuinely personal experience
Oct. 2021 • Family
We came to Bolney Wine Estate for a wine tour and tasting treat in celebration of my fathers birthday. I’m only 18, I was a little apprehensive as I knew nothing about wine. However, our guid was really informative and engaging, bringing the whole process to life with excellent anecdotes in an upbeat manner. Thoroughly enjoyed the tasting, learned loads, and of course the wine was superb. I would definitely recommend this experience.

This was an amazing experience. Learnt so much about how wine and food interact.
The staff were very friendly and the restaurant with balcony was a good place just to have lunch and coffee or a glass of wine.

Wine tor day
Sep. 2021
We had a wine tour booked and arrived early. Well greated and sat on the balcony with coffee overlooking the vines
The talk was very good and a nice walk around part of the vinyard and winery and then back for a nice tasting of the wines
The resyaurant was serving very nice meals and snaccs and plenty of chance to sample the wines even if you had not been on tour
Spent more time oh the balcony having tea and scones
This was a great day out and thanks to all the staff for their friendlyness
