Explore England’s premier organic vineyard and get a fascinating insight into the world of organic wine production with this Afternoon Tea and Wine Tasting Tour for Two.
The award-winning Sedlescombe vineyard is the largest and oldest organic vineyard in the UK. This long established, family run business welcomes you to join them on a tour around their 22 acres of vines.
This is your chance to admire the work of one of the UK’s true-eco-pioneers. Roy Cook, is often heralded as the grandfather of organic grape vine cultivation, after planting his first vine back in 1979. And in 2010, Sedlescombe became the first vineyard to release "Biodynamic" English wine, an organic method of production that incorporates lunar rhythms into the grape growing process.
On arrival you will be greeted by staff who will seat you. Your afternoon tea will include two freshly baked butter scones, served with strawberry jam and clotted cream. You will enjoy fresh strawberries and a selection of freshly made sandwiches, finished with a pot of tea for two.
Also included within your day is a wine tasting experience, you can enjoy tasting up to six of Sedlescombe’s home-grown organic and biodynamic wines, including whites, red, and fizz as well as fruit wines and delicious liqueurs.
On the day you are welcome to walk the vineyard and woodland nature trail, see the winery, self-build house and photo display.
