The new day trip: 20 UK vineyards to visit
Make the most of the British wine boom and have a grown-up day out and a glass (or two)
Trotton Estate Vineyards
Trotton Estate is a small, family-run vineyard, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. The Tour begins with a leisurely walk through the vineyards where you will be thoroughly entertained by our expert wine guides. They will talk you through the history, the grapes grown and the winemaking processes used. They can also explain the wine movement in the UK, why it has become such a fast growing industry and the differences between the various areas and the wines produced . We finish with our Tasting and are eager to try to answer any questions on English wine you care to ask. Picnic hampers are also available to enjoy among the vines including, for example, dishes such as spinach and feta tarts, charcuterie and lemon posset with fresh berries (£18 per person).
The Tours and Tastings last around 90-120 minutes and are available to book online every Friday starting at 1pm and every Saturday starting at 11am from May to September. Special dates and private parties can be arranged on request so just email or call us to arrange.
