The two hour tour, conducted by the vineyard owners ourselves, takes you outdoors for a relaxed and informative walk through the seemingly endless rows of Pinot and Chardonnay vines, to discover the work involved in growing grapes to the highest standard in the UK's challenging climate.
Then it’s back to our comfortable visitors centre, where you'll discover how the vineyard wascreated and the various stages involved in bringing our range of
international award winning sparkling wines to market.
