"A truly unique English vineyard experience! All of us thought the tour was amazing and culminated in a superb tasting at the end. All the wines were extremely good and the tour gave us an insight into English wine production that none of us knew before. We will definitely be back!"
"Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our visit to the Chapel Down winery and a special thanks to our host, David, for his excellent tour."
"A fantastic visit that exceeded all expectations. Being told about different grapes and what can grow in the UK, then seeing how the grapes are squeezed or squashed and how different wine is made was so interesting. You then see how sparkling wine is made and we got to see part of the bottling process. This really is a live vineyard and winery. I have a new found love of English wine. We make really lovely wines and seeing how it's done is surprisingly interesting to all."
