Details

We know we are biased, but having travelled to countless wine regions around the World, we still think you can’t beat the magic of an English vineyard. England is producing outstanding wine, but many of us haven’t tried it or visited a vineyard, now is your chance!

Situated on the Kent/Sussex border we are in the perfect location to run beautiful trails, explore local vineyards and enjoy delicious wine and local produce!

Accommodation

Our base for the weekend is the beautiful Oxney Organic Estate, an award winning organic farm and vineyard. The estate produces fantastic still and sparkling organic wine, as well as organic lamb, all of which we will sample over the weekend.

The beautiful converted barns are situated on the farm, and within running distance to numerous vineyards including Oxney, Chapel Down and Gusbourne, making it the perfect location for exploring the region. The barns are spacious with great communal areas including a games room and a tennis court.




The Wine
English vineyards are producing outstanding wine that is making waves on the international stage, particularly English Sparkling which often rivals top champagne! Over the weekend you will sample plenty of delicious local wine through wine tastings and 2 visits to local vineyards. You will also have the opportunity to sample wine sourced from Rioja and Bordeaux (the other regions we operate).
