Visit Us

Visit us this summer for wine tasting, vineyard tours and al-fresco dining amongst the vines.

We offer a range of experiences that you can book in advance or if you prefer to be impromptu you are welcome to drop-in for a wine tasting, a glass of chilled wine, or a bottle to take home.  One of our most popular items are the sparkling and still wine tasting flights – these offer you the chance to taste, at your own pace, three of our wines guided by written notes.   Our knowledgeable staff are always on hand to give advice and answer questions.    We serve local Sussex Charcuterie and Cheese boards and nibbles to accompany our wines.

You can also enjoy a leisurely self-guided walk around the vineyard.

The views from our Tasting Room and south-facing balcony our second to none – we look forward to welcoming you here.

Really enjoyable tasting session last Friday. A great idea to focus on pairing with very different canapes, which is very relevant for this time of year. Very knowledgeable host, lovely tasting rooms and most importantly - great wines! Thank you.

I wasn’t sure what to expect as not a great lover of white wine but it was a wedding gift and I have to say I enjoyed it more than I thought I would! I learnt a lot from the tour, Monica was engaging, friendly and informative. The pairing of wine and cheese was great (I’m not a great lover of cheese) it all made sense, the contrast of flavours, textures etc.I’m glad I wasn’t driving as I felt a bit tiddly on the way home! An enjoyable couple of hours thank you.

Absolutely lovely experience this weekend visiting this beautiful estate. We had the Vinyard tour and wine tasting with cheese board. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. Interesting to learn about the work and history of the Vinyard. Bonnie the dog joined us on our tour and we loved playing with her and her tennis ball as we wondered around. The cheeseboard was delicious as were the wines. Would highly recommend visiting here.

Excellent wine, beautiful estate! Staff was very passionate, warm and welcoming. And a cute dog Bunny!The only thing is, the tour was a bit too long and we felt like some of the things could've been said while we're sipping the wine instead of standing in the hot sun for 1hr. Also, wish picnic baskets were available.Other than that, a wonderful place to visit.

Lovely place with wonderful people.Treated the wife and mother-in-law to a flight each - 3 glasses of still and 3 sparkling, cheese board and meat board.Took the self guided tour as the paid tour was fully booked 5 weeks in advance. My tour guide reading seemed a bit boring for the group.Fantastic grounds. It was quite busy with almost all tables and chairs being used.Noticed a couple had paid for a picnic basket which you can take and sit down by the lake.The route has some gentle slopes, nothing too steep and took about half an hour. It's all grass so not recommended for high heels.Even bought 3 bottles before leaving. Definitely recommend on a sunny / cloudy day.To the owner, recommend a winter weekend one maybe, festoon lighting around the vines, patio heaters on the decking.
