On The Menu

We believe that for the best flavours it’s important to follow the seasons. As a result our wine tour lunches are simple and honest, made using the best naturally in-season ingredients grown right here.

For some tours we can upgrade your lunch to include a multi-course premium tasting menu. Please ask for more details during booking.

What Our Customers Say

FAQ

  • Our Wine Tours are exclusively private experiences, run all year round and can be organised Wednesday to Sunday including bank holidays.
  • We operate a purely private service and we ordinarily operate for a minimum of 6 guests. We make specific focus on visiting off the beaten trail vineyards and boutiques where we feel guests can connect with stories and experiences which are real and authentic. That said we are always happy to host smaller groups but we do ask that a surcharge be covered for any empty seats up to a maximum of 6. This surcharge is passed on to the vineyards to pay them a fair return for their time to host us privately.
  • For a full-day itinerary the surcharge would be £75 per empty seat, and £50 per empty seat for a half-day.
  • For groups larger than 12 there may be an additional transport fee (which will always be as low as possible)
  • To avoid disappointment please try to book at least 2 weeks in advance. We are highly bespoke and tailored itineraries take time to arrange.
  • Dogs are always welcome but please make this clear during booking. Kids too, at a reduced rate of course.

A Quick Side Note

Drinking alcohol gives your brain a reward that it didn’t earn. If you drink too often then your brain learns that the best (easiest) way to feel good is to drink more alcohol, rather than do the normal things that make you feel good (work hard, accomplish things, help others, etc.). Be careful messing with your neurotransmitters!
