Tour and Tasting at Bolney Estate

In the heart of rural Sussex lives Bolney Wine Estate, one of England’s longest established vineyards. The Estate, located in the village of Bolney, is situated on a hill which was part of the Butting Hill One Hundred. In 1972 the estate was founded by Rodney and Janet Pratt, with just 3 acres of vines and a single grape variety. From our humble beginnings, the vineyard has expanded to 39 acres with over 8 varieties grown on site, including Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, as well as state-of-the-art winery and disgorging room. In the 1990s Samantha Linter (daughter of the founders) took charge of the winemaking and since then they have won numerous international awards for both out still and sparkling wines. Today three generations of the family are involved in the business. For those wanting to visit, there is plenty to do. Whether you want to explore the vineyards, discover more about winemaking in England, get involved in a wine tasting or enjoy lunch on our stunning viewing balcony overlooking the vines - there is something for everyone! This 1½ hour tasting experience is a chance for anyone with an interest in wine to learn everything they could possibly want to know about the process. From finding the perfect spot in which to plant the vines and choosing the grape types to making the wine itself, this tour is a chance to find out exactly what goes into a bottle of wine, whether that’s red, white, rose or sparkling. England may not yet be a country that’s automatically associated with wine production, but vineyards such as the Bolney Estate are working hard to change that, and this tour will provide some insight into how the wine industry in this country has taken off recently.  Visitors can enjoy walking among the vines themselves in their Eighteen Acre field, find out what the inside of a cutting-edge winery looks like and get the chance to ask any questions they may have about wine and it’s production.Then there’s a chance to taste three award winning wines with an expert on hand to talk through the flavours and how they have created the blends that have earned the admiration of critics the world over.There is an on-site café which serves cake and coffee for anyone who wants to stay and enjoy the atmosphere for a little longer and guests will have the chance to buy any of the wines that they have developed a taste for on the day.
