Gorgeous organic vineyard and winery with tours and accommodation, located within the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty and 20 minute drive to the South East England coast.
Oxney Organic Estate is based near the historic town of Rye on the borders of East Sussex and Kent in what is becoming a serious wine region with a number of vineyards and wineries. Oxney is the largest organic vineyard in the UK and produces elegant, crisp and pure sparkling and still wines in a beautiful spot in the village of Beckley. On site is a gorgeous tasting room, lovely shop, outside a circular terrace under cover for drinks and the estate’s picnic lunches. Tours and tastings are available and can be booked online (www.oxneyestate.com). Bespoke tours can be organised for larger groups. Oxney has self catering accommodation on the farm (three converted barns sleep 14 in total) as well as two shepherd’s huts in the vineyard for a glamping experience.
Vineyard, Winery and Tasting Tour
Join us at 10.30am on Fridays and Saturdays starting April 12th 2019 (until end October) for a tour of the vineyard, winery and a guided tasting. Throughout the 90 minutes you will be guided by one of our experienced and knowledgeable team members. You will gain insight into the English wine revolution and our very marginal, cold climate and how we grow grapes organically here at Oxney. Then you will visit the winery and we talk through our approach to winemaking and how we make our wines. And finally, we go to our tasting room and you will have a guided tasting of our still and sparkling wines.
The tours cost £20 per head, please book on www.oxneyestate.com.
Post Tour Picnic Lunch
After the tour, enjoy a delicious and inviting picnic basket with organic Sussex cheese, charcuterie and bread plus more (this must be booked in advance separately after booking your tour and each basket is for two). Plus of course wine – two glasses of our chilled still wine. Picking up your well presented lunch basket you can grab a secluded table in our winery observatory at the top of our beautiful building or enjoy the vineyard from the terrace under its tipi roof. You can even grab a picnic rug and go out into the vineyard and have a proper secluded picnic on our beautiful estate. The picnics are all for two people and if your party is larger just select as many as you require.
Lunch is £20 per head (£40 for a basket for two), please book on www.oxneyestate.com.
