Our Vineyard & Winery Tour, and Wine Tasting Experience

We invite you down to our little valley nestled in West Sussex countryside for a 90 minute wine tour and tasting Wednesdays – Sundays every week. We begin the tour with a glass of wine in hand and strolling to our award winning vineyards to explain a year in the life of the vine. Whilst amongst the vines we'll be enjoying a couple of still white wines and teaching you tricks of the trade on how to get the most from your glass with specific tasting techniques. We then meander on as a group to our winery. It is in here we will show you behind the scenes of our grape to glass process and our specific techniques for still and sparkling wine production. 

A final opportunity to taste some more of the Kingscote selection with one of our Charmat sparkling's and one of our Traditional Method sparkling's to compare.As the tour draws to a close we head back to the cellar door where there is an opportunity to collect a pre-ordered Picnic Ploughman's or homemade Cream Tea to enjoy in our sunny wine garden with a glass of something chilled and a game of croquet. Perfect!
