You can also choose to add lunch by the river to make it even more of an enjoyable and informative day out. You will have the opportunity to learn how we grow and nurture our vines to give us the best grapes. You will gain an understanding of how the weather can impact yield, and the importance of the soil and the environment to the wine. We then walk to the winery, a converted Grade II listed Victorian barn at the top of the vineyard. You will be guided through our winemaking process, learning about the modern, innovative methods and state-of-the-art equipment that we use in our production of quality English wine. The winemaker then talks you through a wine tasting of all our wines. This includes our wine that was selected for the Queen’s party on the Royal Barge at her Diamond Jubilee celebrations and is served at top restaurants, such as Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons.
