With UK minimoons set to sky rocket this year, and lockdown restrictions due to relax, Tinwood Estate in West Sussex is delighted to throw open the gates to guests once more for Vineyard Tours, Wine Tastings, Afternoon Tea and Overnight Stays!
Since the first vines were planted in 2007 at the foot of the South Downs National Park, Tinwood Estate has quickly established a reputation for producing the very finest English sparkling wines, including the Estate Brut, the Blanc de Blancs and an exquisite Rosé. They recently released their 2018 vintages of all three varieties. Owner Art Tukker says, "The weather in 2018 was the best year we've ever had at Tinwood, and we're expecting great things from this vintage. I would go so far as to say this was the vintage of a generation".
Just over an hour from London, next door to the world famous Goodwood Estate, Tinwood is perfect for a day trip to meet the winegrowers themselves and gain an insight into how they grow the vines and make the wines, with a vineyard tour and full tasting experience. The recently-built tasting room already boasts a vast outdoor south-facing terrace, overlooking the vines, and a Tinwood marquee with heating will be ready should the weather not be so favourable. Taking 1.5 hours, you'll be shown around the vines and estate, and then taste three glasses of delicious sparkling wine - after the tour you're welcome to stay for an extra glass or a cold bottle!
Daily Vineyard Tours and wine tasting start from £18 pp and run daily at 3pm, and on Saturdays at both 12pm and 3pm.
In 2016 three luxurious lodges were added to the estate with views over vines towards the setting sun. Complete with a barrel sauna and jacuzzi for guest use, a continental breakfast is delivered in a hamper each morning to the lodge door.
Nightly rates start from £195 per night for two people including breakfast.
Perfect for couples during their over night stay, or a pre-wedding get together with loved ones, Sparkling Afternoon Teas will be held on the first Wednesday of each month throughout the summer. The afternoon teas will include a guided vineyard tour, full Tinwood tasting (three glasses) and afternoon tea. The menu includes finger sandwiches, plain and fruit scones, macaroons, chocolate brownie, flapjack, fresh fruit tartlets, chocolate coated strawberries and Ferrero Rocher.
Sparkling Afternoon Tea is £49pp, including tour, tasting (three glasses) and food.
