Lease a Vine

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.



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


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?


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


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.


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.


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)
