Tour FAQs

 

When is your main tour season?

This runs from February-October with some tours available in the winter months, too. Late summer/early autumn brings our harvest season and this can be a very exciting time to visit.

 

How do I tell you about my dietary requirements?

Please contact us for queries about dietary requirements by calling us on 01444881575 or emailing us at events@bolneywineestate.com.

 

How much wine will I be served on a tour?

Usually, you’ll be served around ½ a bottle of wine. We do free-pour, however, so this is an approximation.

Yes! We have a cellar door shop stocking our full portfolio of award-winning English still and sparkling wines, as well as seasonal local produce.
