Our vineyard tour & wine tasting aims to be both informative and enjoyable. We keep our group size to a maximum of 22 to ensure everyone has the opportunity to ask questions and learn fully from the experience. Our tour starts with a walk around the beautiful 30 acre vineyard where you will learn about many of the challenges and joys of growing grapes for wine in England and the story of Albourne Estate. We then continue to the Winery and Bottle Store to see the equipment used in making our wines with detailed explanations of the processes involved in both still and sparkling wine production providing an insight into what makes our wines so special. Lastly, you will enjoy a guided tasting of four of our wines (a sparkling, two still and our ever-popular English Vermouth) matched with samples of local Sussex cheeses in our converted 400 year old dairy.
After the tour you will have the opportunity to visit our shop and Tasting Room to enjoy a further glass of wine or a Sussex Cheese or Charcuterie platter whilst enjoying the expansive views of the South Downs from our balcony. Alternatively, treat yourself to one of our gourmet Vineyard Picnics made from local Sussex produce, put together in a wicker basket for two complete with plates, cutlery and wine glasses. Picnics must be booked in advance but can be added on at a later date by selecting Picnics at the Vineyard from the Visit Us page.
If you have a voucher for one of our tours you will be able to redeem this at the final step of the check-out rather than inputting your card details. Unfortunately, our booking system can only accept one voucher per booking so if you are booking for multiple people using several vouchers please complete separate bookings for each one.
CANCELLATIONS: We will fully refund any tickets cancelled up to 7 days prior to the event. We can also move bookings to a new date subject to availability.
