The Ultimate Wine and Food Tasting Tour

Bolney Wine Estate rests in the heart of the verdant Sussex countryside across eighteen acres of lush land. The rolling south-facing hills are replete with endless rows of vines that bloom with a variety of grapes. These are the grapes that will go on to make our award-winning English wines, ready and waiting for your discovery.

 

Our vast estate, first started by the parents of our MD and Headmaker, Sam Linter, is one of the oldest in the country. With our Ultimate Wine and Food Tasting Tour, you’ll get the chance to tour the stunning Sussex vineyard and state-of-the-art winery that has brought English wine to the global stage. In fact, our varied portfolio of exquisite still and sparkling wines has been recognised with a string of awards from our peers in the industry.

 

Explore the unsurpassable beauty of the Bolney Wine Estate on a three-hour tour that will satisfy all the senses. You’ll get a tutored tasting of five of our award-winning wines carefully paired with a food matching plate and a sumptuous seasonal mezze board.

Just come back from an amazing afternoon enjoying the ultimate wine and food tasting tour. Could not recommend more highly- the guy was brilliant- so informative! Bolney is in a beautiful location too. Very delicious wine served in very generous amounts- and delicious cheeses and charcuterie.
We will be back!

We have just come back from your wine tour and I wanted to email and say how wonderful we thought the lady running it was. She is INCREDIBLE! We couldn’t have been more impressed if we had tried. She was passionate, knowledgeable, personable, enthusiastic… and funny! We left wanting to shout Bolney Wine Estate from the rooftops.
We haven’t been before, brought 2 bottles of wine as she was so wonderful when selling/ telling us about them (they were glorious!)& will be booking in again soon!
Thank you so very much! We had a wonderful time.
