Vineyard Tour and Tasting at Chafor Wine Estate
In a nutshell
- Learn about wine making
- Taste wines from different grapes
- May to July
There is nothing like taking a leisurely stroll around glorious countryside, but this vineyard tour has so much more to offer than just breath taking views and the chance to learn about the intricate and ancient art of wine-making. For those who want to know what it’s really like to run a vineyard, this tour is perfect as the man who made it all happen is usually either conducting the tours himself, or can be found out among the vines doing anything from checking the ripeness of the grapes to lighting hundreds of special candles to keep the vines warm in the face of impending frost.
This tour is perfect for any pair who appreciates the chance to find out more about British wine, not least the secret to the success of local growers like Tim Chafor. They can find out how he taught himself the business and learn how his vineyard is earning a reputation amongst the critics for producing high-quality wine that can hold its own against more established contenders.
This experience will start with a warm welcome, including a drink, and guests will then be shown around the vineyard and given a chance to see how the process works, from deciding where to plant the vines to harvesting the grapes and transforming them into delectable drinks. With 23 acres of land, there is plenty to see and even more to learn about the incredible things that the team at Chafor have achieved.
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and, of course, the all-important tasting during which guests will get the chance to sample some of the finished product alongside some bar snacks.
