Our family owned vineyard was established in 1972 and we produce award-winning red, white and sparkling English wine. We recently opened a new visitors centre with an enlarged cafe and retail shop and a fantastic viewing balcony overlooking 18 acres of vines. Why not come along and enjoy breakfast or lunch with friends and sample our wines? You can also book a guided tour & tasting (variety of dates and times available) or perhaps experience one of our popular wine masterclasses on a Saturday? We also run special events throughout the year, including fine-dining evenings and summer evening tours.

We only live along the road yet for some reason until this week had never got round to visit. What a mistake!! A glorious carrot cake and a steaming hot mocha on a sunlit balcony overlooking the vineyard. It doesn't get much better than this!! Since then we've been three times!!

We enjoyed all the wines we tasted, the Cuvée Noir bubbly red was a pleasant surprise as we don't normally like bubbly wines. It was an overcast, but pleasant day and we were shown the vineyards and learnt about the... More

We opted for the Winter wine tasting package, which involved tasting a handful of the estate's whites, reds and sparkling wines, and enjoying a cheese and cold meat platter. Alan, our guide, was very entertaining, and really knew a lot about the estate and their wines. His enthusiasm really shone though and he was a pleasure to listen to. It's... More
