Chapel Down Guided Tours
Chapel Down Winery Guided Tours of the Vineyard and Winery run daily (June to Sept) and weekends only in May and October and last for approximately an hour and a quarter. We usually have 3 tours available each day. However, please call us on 01580 766111 to confirm availability before your visit, as tour times are subject to change and do get booked up. We'd hate for you to travel and be disappointed.
During the tour your experienced guide will explain about the history of English Wine, the methods we use in the vineyards and the reasons for the grapes we choose to grow. The tour continues in the Winery where you will learn about the processes behind the production of our Award-winning still and sparkling wines.
To complete the experience, all tours include a tasting of a selection of our award winning-wines. (Apple Juice is offered to children under 18 and drivers). Although visitors are invited to wander around our vineyards, grounds and herb garden unaccompanied, access to the Chapel Down Winery is strictly for those accompanied on the Guided Tour ONLY.

"I wanted to thank both you and your teams for the hard work and effort you put into our 100 year event yesterday. Everyone was friendly and nothing too much trouble, things ran like clockwork, the service and food excellent and the tour, tasting and quiz a great success. I've received nothing but complimentary feedback about the event which is all thanks to you guys. My husband was disappointed he wasn't invited as he would have very much liked to do the tour and tasting and enjoyed the restaurant too. Maybe you'll see me again soon before too long! Hope you have a successful summer" Hayley Rose July 2011
