We took a tour with wine tasting. The tour takes you down to the banks of the river Thames and is delightful on a sunny day. The wine tasting that followed was very interesting and informative. This family owned vineyard is run with a passion...More

Top class tour of this little 16.5 acre English vineyard and a good tasting session, all made extra special by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the highly articulate lady owner. The five wines we tasted were good quality, but what we really learnt was that...More

My girlfriend and I turned up for a tour here recently (July 2015). It was beautiful weather and we were greeted by two gorgeous dogs, which funnily enough were our favourite breed - a fantastic start to what we hoped would be a great afternoon....More

We received a more welcoming response from the dogs than the owner, despite visiting on a day they were supposed to be open for visits. We were asked if we wanted to taste as none was open! Arrived in the "tasting room" only to find...More
