Overview

Our English Wine Cellar Door Tour gives you an insight into the English Wine industry and the opportunity to visit three award winning vineyards on the day, for a tasting at the Cellar Door. Your English Wine Expert Tour guide will take you to three contrasting vineyards so you can see large producers right through to a boutique and small producers.

Drop in, taste, enjoy, and why not grab a bottle as a memento of your day!

You’ll learn all about the English Wine industry as you drive through picturesque towns and villages and uncover the UK's rich history in fruit farming and local produce.

    Fantastic day visiting 3 lovely wineries, each excellent in their own way. Brian, the guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. Being on a small tour made being by myself easier as people mingled.

    Had a brilliant time on this tour. Given that I'm not really a wine drinker it was really nice to experience UK and local wines. Also to learn about the processes and concerns regarding producing wine in the UK. Really informative. My wife who is a wine drinker also really enjoyed it. Justin the tour guide was an excellent host and guide. Nice picnic lunch also.

    A comfortable, well organised day that was both interesting and very enjoyable. The knowledgeable and entertaining host, Martin, made the journey to the first vineyard fly by with his history of English wine and other anecdotes. The tastings were very well tutored but also very light hearted and we were able to explore a wide variety of English wine. We were lucky with the weather and an excellent pick-nick lunch under the trees at Chapel Down was delightful.

    We had a great tour, visiting a small producer, a large producer and a boutique estate with Justin. All of the wines we tasted were very good. Justin was great fun and very knowledgeable, teaching us a lot about English wine and the areas we visited. Nicola and Justin produced a lovely picnic for us at lunch which was tailored to our dietary requirements. I've recommended the tour to a few friends already.
