Lease Your Own Vines

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own a vineyard or enjoy your own custom labelled wine?

Our vine lease scheme offers you the chance to do just that. It's a perfect gift for anyone who loves wine. Vines are leased from our Bacchus vineyard and each lease includes a number of exclusive benefits.

The Benefits

VINE LEASE CERTIFICATE -

Receive a personalised certificate containing details of your vines and their location.

- VISIT YOUR VINES -

Visit the Chapel Down Winery throughout the year to explore the vineyards and monitor your vines’ progress. In the summer, why not enjoy a picnic in your vineyard?

- TAKE PART IN THE HARVEST -

In early Autumn, meet the team and help pick your Bacchus grapes, England’s answer to Sauvignon Blanc, during the harvest.

- EXCLUSIVE LEASE HOLDER EVENT -

The following summer, enjoy a fantastic exclusive event with a special guest speaker at the Chapel Down Winery. As well as enjoying a two-course meal, you will have the opportunity to tour the winery, meet the top team and your vine lease ‘neighbours’ and taste your own wine, plus much more.

- ENJOY YOUR OWN PERSONALISED WINE -

At the end of the Lease Holder Event, you will be presented with a case (or more) of your own Tenterden Estate Bacchus Reserve wine, complete with your personalised labels.

- EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS -

Keep up-to-date with winery news and enjoy a 10% discount off our full range of wines via our retail shop or by telephone mail order. (Discount does not apply to existing offers or sale items)

The Telegraph’s Top 10 Experiences

“For the person who already has everything, why not give the gift of a unique experience that will create an ever-lasting memory? If they yearn to own their own winery, leasing them a vine at the Chapel Down vineyard in Kent isn't a bad place to start. They'll be invited to take part in the harvest and be sent a case of personalised bottles."
The Telegraph, December 2016

Vine lease holder testimonial

"A belated thank you very much for yet another superb Vine Lease Holders session. The ambience, camaraderie and food certainly matched the excellent wines. We had a wonderful time (as usual) and have learned something new to add to our repertoire of wine knowledge - watch out Frazer and Guy! Thank you, thank you. We look forward to seeing you for the harvest, if not next year."
