Overview

What could possibly go better together than English wine and English cheese?  Quite simply nothing, they were made for each other!

 This wine tour will consist of a guided tasting at the award winning Chapel Down Vineyard and Wayfarer Wines.  Followed by a picnic lunch amongst the vines with of course a glass of Chapel Down wine.

 Then we head to Silcocks Farm, who are well known for their delicious cheeses and organic produce which is all made right there on the farm. They will introduce you to the cheese making process and organic farming, and then onto the main event…an English Wine and English Cheese pairing with some of our favourite English Wines and English Cheeses.

 You’ll get to sample a selection of some of our favourite English Wine and English cheeses and learn the all important art to pairing food and wine; before having the opportunity to purchase any of the delights we’ve sampled (and more) from the fine food store.

Many thanks Justin and Nicola for a really enjoyable day. Justin provided lots of interesting information on the journey and the two tastings provided great opportunities to try some excellent wines we had not previously encountered. We found the cheese and wine pairing session very good, learning lots about both the wines and the cheeses and have found some new favourites in both! Would thoroughly recommend this tour, learned lots and had good fun too.

My tour was a present from my wife and what an excellent present it turned out to be. There were 9 of us in the group and a good time was had by all. Visited Chapel Down and Wayfarer vineyards in Kent. Nicola's advice was to have a 'hearty' breakfast. Good call, we sampled 12 wines before lunch! A pub lunch,food was excellent, served with a fine glass of Rosé We finished the afternoon with a cheese tasting experience with a further 6 glasses of wine. Our hosts, Nicola and Justin were informative and entertaining. I thouroughly recommend English Wine Tasting Tours Fraser

We went as a group of 4 for a milestone birthday. We all thought it was so brilliant. It was a rainy day but that made no difference to the enjoyment. We were picked up in Central London, taken to 2 vineyards, a lovely pub and then a farm. We tasted delicious wine, sumptuous cheese and learnt loads all with no hard sell. The day pivoted to an indoor venue with ease and it did nothing to take away from the fun. I would highly recommend this for an absolute stress free, fun day out that is amazing value for money

I had such a wonderful time here, I'd give 6 stars if I could!!!! I've never felt so looked after it was as if they'd given birth to me and I was their tiny baby

On the way to the vineyards, Justin provided us with comprehensive background knowledge on the birth and progression of English wines. There was plenty of opportunity to try the different sparkling and white wines and the wine and cheese paring at the end of the afternoon was perfect!
