Join us for a 2024 tour of the Estate. We will guide you around the Estate and provide an informal tasting of locally produced wines and our Estate-made craft cider. We will explore the cider orchard and vineyard whilst enjoying stops along the way to taste wine and learn about viticulture and life on the Estate. Our first wines will be released at some point in Spring / Summer of 2024 and once available these will feature in our tours.
The tours and tastings will be held on Saturdays starting at 11am and 2pm and last roughly 1 and a half hours. They will include:
- A tour of the Orchard discussing the importance of traditional orchards and the UK cider scene
- An overview of our beehives and the role of bees to the Estate
- An up-close view of the vineyard with details of English viticulture
- A tasting during and after which will include generous tasters of 5 local wines and our Estate cider
- After the tour you are free to explore and take photos on your own. Wines and cider can be purchased after the tour on the day.
Food/Picnics – we are looking at options for food to add onto your tour but cannot guarantee anything at this time. We will update this page and our social as this changes.

Clothing & Footware
We are a working vineyard with uneven ground and are open to the elements so sensible shoes and clothing is advised.
We aim to carry out the tours in all weather and ensure that tours remain fun. If rain is forecast please dress appropriate as we will be out in the elements for the tour. For the tasting we will either be under a gazebo overlooking the vineyard if it is light rain or in a rustic barn if it is heavy rain. We will only cancel the tour in extreme weather conditions and we will either rearrange or refund you ticket.
We aim to start tours on-time to ensure people make taxis/buses/trains. If you arrive late the tour may have started. If the group is not in the tasting area then please make your way through to the vineyard and see where the tour is. The tour party should be easily visible.
Unfortunately due to the uneven ground surface the tour is unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs. We do hope to improve this longer term.
The tour takes a route through the fields and vineyard. Whilst there are stops on route the talks will be conducted whilst standing. We will provide some seating at the tour stops for guests who require to sit down.
Due to the nature of the event where alcohol is consumed, we do not allow children under 18 to attend. So leave the kids at home and have a fantastic day out.
Unfortunately we do not allow dogs on the tours.
If you do not arrive for your scheduled tour, then the tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded. If you let us know within 14 days that you are unable to attend we may be able to schedule onto a different date. If we cancel your booking in its entirety, you will be entitled to a full refund for the purchase price.
