To all our customers,
We hope you are all keeping well and safe. We are very pleased to have welcomed our first guests back to our accommodation and outdoor tours last week and we look forward to seeing many more of you over the coming months! We’ll be updating this page regularly with the latest updates and timetables for our tours, accommodation and our shop.

Vineyard Tours, Tastings & Events
April 12th – May 17th
We are running a reduced schedule of outdoor tours between April 12th and May 17th which will take place on our tasting room terrace. We will be running the full tour and visiting the vineyard and the outside areas of the winery however we cannot go inside the winery during these tours. The tasting will be conducted on our outside terrace. There are very limited places on these tours and priority has been given to our guests staying during this time. The remaining spaces have now been released are are available to book here. The timetable for this period can be found below. Please note that bookings for this period are limited to the Rule of Six (maximum 6 people from multiple households, or a maximum of two households if more than 6 people).
From May 17th Onwards
We will be starting our regular summer schedule from May 17th (or Roadmap Stage 3 if later) and our tours will return to being indoors. We will also be putting on some regular and one off events over the summer months. Our regular schedule can be found below and all tours can be booked here.
Please note that if you are booking a tour between May 17th – June 21st then your booking is subject to the Rule of Six (a maximum of six people from multiple households, or two households maximum if more than 6 people). From June 21st we will revert to our usual maximum of 8 people per booking. If you want to make a booking for more than 8 people then please get in touch with our team to request a private tour.
