Description

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.

Order a taxi!

It was bought as a Christmas Present and we finally managed to organise it in October. (a lovely grown up activity - but we had to wait till half term until we had childcare) We learnt lots - the guide was really knowledgeable and interesting - told us about the history and the process of winemaking and particularly why English fizz is the best. And of course the tasting! Book a taxi if you're not disciplined enough to spit! What a good value for money tour. They have a lovely restaurant too - but recommend you book. It gets busy.

You learn something new every day

This vineyard trip was bought for me as a birthday gift and I loved every minute of it. There was so much more to producing bottles of wine than I'd realised. I'm normally just at the drinking end of the chain!!
