For £10 you can do a self guide walk around the vineyard complete with an informative guide book telling you all about the different vines. The short walk takes about 20 mins - or you can do a longer one - then you get to select 3 wines to taste [included in the price]. And if you then decide to buy £20 of wine you get a £5 discount. It is just a nice relaxed place to learn & enjoy a bit more about wine.

We opted to do the self guided tour that took around 35 minutes; a very pleasant wander round the vineyard. The fee (£10 pp) includes wine tasting at the end (you choose 3 wines from quite a long list of the wines they produce, or even their apple juices) plus £5 off a £20 spend on their products. So, a pretty good deal and also very enjoyable.

Advertised tours on their website with a closing time of 5pm and a duration of 30-40 minutes. We drove an hour to get there and were turned away at five past four as they'd stopped tours for the day. No quarter or apology given for the lack of/inaccurate information on their website. Very disappointed.

A wonderful setting, nestled in the rolling hills just outside of the village of Biddenden itself, this vineyard boasts real heritage, leading the charge for English wine long before it became a vogue pursuit.

We were a group of six and plucked for the self-guided tour. Armed with our booklets we negotiated the vineyard in just over 35 minutes, pausing to read and observe the grapes and vines. The tasting was the real winner however. Hats off, the ability to choose from a real variety of wines was great and collectively we sampled the entire range, particularly enjoying the sparkling options as well as the Huxelrebe and Dornfelder. Then primed with our corresponding £5 voucher we bought our preferred wines before heading off into the summer sunset in search of another glass or two.

Perhaps not as polished as Chapel Down or Hush Heath but authentic and generous. Highly recommended.

Fantastic day - we did the 40 mins self guided tour. Then tasted 6 wines, ciders and juice with nibbles, really generous servings. Staff were lovely and friendly. Great day out.

Did the self tour with 3 wine tasting for only £10 each. £5 knocked off if you purchase wine. Great little booklet explaining all the vines and not too onerous walk. We bought some tapas and cheese to accompany our tasting. Everything patiently explained by the lovely staff. Took home red, rose and sparkling which we are still enjoying. A hidden little gem of a pleasant afternoon out after picking our own raspberries.

Tasted the new Ice Cider which was incredible. It is one of the tastiest drinks we have ever had. We also had the nibbles platter and sat in the courtyard. Would recommend it.

Old British vineyard, formerly apple orchards. £15 buys a self guided walk around part of the vineyard and 6 tasters. Some very nice wines, not just sparkling, but also still some ciders. I particularly liked the oak barrelled one - very dfferent.

Book ahead to be sure, but plenty of people just dropped in. Shop of course, some great value options.
