Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own a vineyard? 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 at Tenterden and each lease includes a number of exclusive benefits, including a case of your custom-labelled wine.
Visit the Chapel Down Winery throughout the year to explore the vineyards and monitor your vines’ progress. In the summer months, you are welcome to enjoy a picnic in the vineyard or a walk around our wider estate.
Many hands make light work! Get involved with our vineyard team at our busiest and most important time of year. In early Autumn, you will meet the team and help pick your Bacchus grapes, during the harvest. You will be rewarded with a glass for your efforts and a harvest tour.
The following summer, enjoy an exclusive event with fellow vinelease holders hosted by a 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 team as well as taste your own wine.
A Vine lease makes the perfect gift and experience. At the end of the Lease Holder Event, you will be presented with a case (or more) of your own Tenterden Estate Bacchus wine, complete with your own personalised labels!
Keep up to date with news from our winery and enjoy a *10% discount off our full range of wines via our retail shop, online, or by telephone mail order.
