Welcome to Bolney Wine Estate

Start exploring


Award-winning English wine, crafted in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

In the heart of rural Sussex lies Bolney Wine Estate, one of England’s oldest and most beautiful vineyards.


Our story began in 1972 when founders Janet and Rodney Pratt planted three acres of vines to create what was then one of the very first commercial vineyards in England. In the 1990s, Sam Linter, their daughter, joined the business and with her passion for business and wine-making, grew the Estate into what it is today.


Celebrating our 50th anniversary this year, we hope that you can join in our incredible calendar of events. From celebratory picnics, golden tours, exclusive menus and more.


Enjoy a complimentary glass of Bolney Bubbly and Birthday Petit Fours for the guest/s celebrating a 50th milestone in 2022, when you dine at the Eighteen Acre. Quote ‘CELEBRATE50′ at time of booking.

Bolney Wine Estate celebrates 50th anniversary

Bolney Wine Estate, the Sussex based vineyard producing award-winning still and sparkling English wines, is proud to be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Fifty years ago, English wine was not widely celebrated.

When founders Janet and Rodney Pratt first took on the challenge of planting vines in sunny Sussex, they encountered sceptics, both at home and abroad, who maintained it was impossible to produce quality English wine. At that time Bolney Wine Estate was just one of a handful of commercial vineyards in the UK, a far cry from the 800+ that exist today. Since 1972, guided by nature and a true understanding of the local microclimate, the estate has been at the forefront of the resurgence of English wine through its use of pioneering techniques, bold innovation and a belief that English wine is deserving of global recognition.
