Small Group Private English Wine Tour

"This tour exceeded our expectations. It is a great alternative to sightseeing in London. The three wineries were all interesting and very different to each other, so we were able to taste a variety of wines of differing prices." - Heather (posted on TripAdvisor)

"We were planning a trip of just over a week to London and in searching for day excursions we came across wine tasting tours. We were intrigued as we had no prior knowledge of any wine industry in England. We had a lovely day trip out to wine country." - Emily (TripAdvisor)

Having a great time on an English Wine Tour

Our Small Group Private Wine Tasting Tour takes you to three award winning vineyards in the picturesque county of Kent or Sussex. Vineyards are selected based on location of collection, availability and suitability to your group.  Below is an example itinerary. 

This wine tour is for groups of 8 or less and we offer a Private Wine Tour taking you to three different vineyards in the local area. Our standard collection point being a main-line station although alternative pick-up points can be pre-arranged outside of London. If you’re staying in London, then a short train journey is the best way to get out of the City (its also more environmentally friendly and the quickest too) and train tickets from London costs about £22 p/p on the weekday and £15 p/p on the weekend. A London pickup and dropoff adds an additional 3.5 hrs of travel time and incurs an additional of cost (£225). Full itinerary can be customised to a degree.

History, Background and Live Narrative
Your private wine tour will depart promptly at 10:00am. We provide a live narrative on the way down that gives you more context about the English wine industry, plus you’ll get to enjoy the scenic English countryside views along the way. Our English wine tour guide is an expert in the industry, who will tell you about the history of English wine since the Roman invasion, the significance of the Battle of Hastings in 1066, and explain who are the movers and shakers in the English wine industry since the birth of modern English wine that started in the 1950s. You will learn about yield and production levels, what grape varietals are grown and even how much money it takes to start a vineyard in England.

Small Producer Vineyard Experience
Planted in 2009, Woodchurch Estate is a small and unique vineyard where we will meet the producer to understand all the hard work that goes into starting a vineyard. Woodchurch specialises in sparkling wine where they have 9 acres of vineyard that produce a classic cuvée, a sparkling rosé, and a delicious blanc de blancs. They have also just released a still chardonnay. You will have a guided wine tasting with the producer and time for purchases.

The North Downs and Chapel Down Vineyard
Chapel Down is nestled in the 15th century shipbuilding port known as the hamlet of Small Hythe were we will explore the vineyard and learn about English viticulture.  Then we head to their tasting room for a guided tasting of their range of English sparkling and still wines. There will be plenty of time to wonder around and browse the wine shop after the tasting.

Food at the The Bull Inn – A Proper Country Pub Lunch
Enjoy a delicious lunch made with local produce and love in this charming traditional English Pub in the village of Benenden. Recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1086 Benenden is steeped in industrial history for both iron-making and cloth-making since the 14th century. The Bull Inn is a traditional old English pub where you can choose from a selection of light lunches all served with a glass of English Wine.

Boutique Vineyard Experience - Herbert Hall Winery
The last stop of the day will be a very lovely vineyard who only produce 2 or 3 sparkling wines, but very nice wines.  Herbert Hall is owned by Nick Hall who has around 20-acres of vineyard.  We will taste in the vineyard and able to visit the winery and most days we get to meet the wine-maker.
