Explore the outstanding natural beauty of Daws Hill Vineyard in the heart of the Chilterns. The vineyard now has around 5000 vines and extends over two acres. The small team uses traditional methods to produce English quality sparkling wine, traditional Champagne verities, Pinot noir, Pinot meunier and Chardonnay. Here you will discover the journey from vine to bottle with this fascinating tour and tasting experience for four. After seeing and learning about the traditional methods used and processes involved in the production of their wines, you and your guests will taste a selection of wines for yourselves under the tuition of the experienced tour guide.
On arrival you will be greeted by one of the wine makers before beginning a guided tour through the vineyard. On route you will learn about the growth of wine grapes and the challenges associated with this. You will then return to the winery to learn about production operations in the winery that include the various processes from pressing the fruit to the fermentation of the wine. Depending on whether it is currently being made at the time, you may also see how cider is produced using apples sourced from the locals’ gardens, as well as then sampling it for yourself.
As part of your experience you will also taste different wines while enjoying some nibbles. At the end of the tuition you are free to browse the onsite shop and purchase the wines at a discounted rate.
