Why not join a Sussex vineyard tour!

Tillington_vineyard sussexPrizewinning Sussex Wines

Sussex in southern England has the same chalky subsoil found in the Champagne region of France. The sunny, dry climate means that, as well as award-winning reds, whites and rosés, East & West Sussex vineyards produce sparkling wines that regularly beat French Champagnes in international competitions and blind taste tests!

Nyetimber Vineyard

One of the best known vineyards is at Nyetimber just outside Brighton. I recommend their Open Day: You can join them for an exclusive tour of the Nyetimber Estate, followed by a Masterclass tasting of their award-winning sparkling wines, led by their head winemaker.

Dates: 10th and 11th June / 1st and 2nd July 2017

Times: 10.00am, 12.00pm, 2.00pm and 4.00pm across both weekends

Tickets: £28.
