Overview

Discover the fascinating world of English Wine with this fabulous Vineyard Tour and Tasting session for two.

Throughout the UK, acres upon acres of vines produce thousands of bottles of top quality luscious wines each year. This experience is an ideal opportunity to find out more about the English wine industry while enjoying a tour of one of England’s finest vineyards, followed by a tasting session where you can sample some of the most popular wines.

During the tour an experienced guide will explain the history of English wine - from how vines are grown and pruned through to picking the grapes, fermentation, blending and bottling at the end. You’ll learn about how vines are produced on a commercial scale and the reasons for the choice of grapes which are selected.

Many vineyards have cafés or a restaurant where you can make the most of your experience and treat yourself to lunch. Programmes vary slightly depending on your chosen location. Please note that the Oxfordshire location includes a winery and brewery tour and tasting for two.

Our son bought us this tour as a Christmas present last year. We really enjoyed it and the wine was excellent. Fortunately for us the day we went was the last of the good autumn weather.

We were bought this as a birthday gift and we had a wonderful day. We started in Henley, and cycled up to the Vineyard which is in a very picturesque location. The tour guide was great, very informative and friendly; we were shown the micro brewery, vineyard and the spirits area which were all great to see. The tasting was also fab, lots of tasty samples with excellent tasting notes and very tasty cheese to accompany it! Would definitely recommend.

Lovely spot (even on a mid-November day with intermittent drizzle). Friendly and welcoming staff, very knowledgeable guide (Howard?) who was able to explain the brewing, wine-making, and tasting procedures superbly well, without either patronising or overly dumbing down, very unpretentious, lots of time allocated so never felt rushed, and excellent choice of drinks to try - and buy - with good offers in the great little shop. Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended. It was a gift - and well worth the cost.

We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to visit again next year at harvest time. An unusual gift which we thought would be a mistake at the end of November, turned into a light-hearted afternoon. The presenter was great and the cold platter was delicious.

A vineyard tour which gave us a real insight into wine and beer production. In the tasting session we learnt a lot about wines and their flavours. And yes, you can swallow after tasting. A lot of fun and reasonable prices in the shop afterwards.

This tour has an advantage that not only do they make wines, but also a range of craft beers and liqueurs (from bought in gin & vodka). The wine & beer making was well explained and we had the opportunity to visit the bottling plant in action before the tasting. We tasted 4 wines (2 white, 1 red and a sparkling wine made using the same grape and method as Champagne), 3 beers and liqueurs. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. There is also a B & B on site, so no worries about tasting and driving!

This was bought as a present and December is probably not the best time to go. The poor weather prevented an outside tour but staying inside and hearing the family story was very interesting. The wine tasting was enjoyable and informative and the cream tea worth the money with tasty home cooked cakes and scones. Plenty of wines,jams,honey and associated bits and bobs to buy. Not suitable for wheelchair users due to steps and uneven ground.
