Winemaker Vineyard Tour for Two at Stopham Estate, West Sussex
Join winemakers Simon or Tom for a tour of Stopham Vineyard; these are the guys who plant the vines, look after them, help pick the grapes and even bottle the wine. The tour starts in the vineyard with stunning unbroken views of the South Downs as the boys impart they're passion for English wine and the history of the vineyard. With a few stops along the way for photos, head across their neighbours field to the state of the art winery tucked away in a converted Grade II listed Victorian barn to gain knowledge into the innovative wine making methods Stopham Vineyard uses. With wine supplied to top UK retail stores you'll be pleased with a taste or two to finish your experience.
