Explore England’s premier organic vineyard and get a fascinating insight into the world of organic wine production with this Deluxe 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.
Start your experience with a self-guided stroll through three vineyards and beautiful woodland before heading to the winery, where your knowledgeable guide will show you how these delicious English wines are made. Moving on to the 'Bar-in-the-Barn', you'll be able to taste the whole range of fabulous home-grown organic and biodynamic wines, including whites, red and sparkling, and also a great range of liqueurs, you'll even get a complimentary bottle of red or white wine to take home.
You will then stop for lunch where you will enjoy a very special indulgent afternoon tea. Your tea will consist of smoked salmon, caviar, quails eggs and prawns followed by fresh strawberries and raspberries with clotted cream and chocolate sponge cake.
