Amazing day!

We had the most incredible time visiting Balfour, Chapel Down and Woodchurch. Nicola helped me adapt the original itinerary I in line with what I wanted to get out of the day and was really accommodating - especially as there were 21 of us celebrating a bday. Everything ran smoothly with a coach picking us up from London Bridge and dropping us back. Recommend and can’t wait to do it again.
Great private wine tour

Really nice day out. The day was thoughtfully planned, we tried some great wines and learnt a lot from the visits and from Nicola.
Great wine tour!

What a great day out! We all had a brilliant trip out with Justin to three wineries. The tour was really well organised, very relaxed, and Justin was a great guide, very funny and informative. Even those in the group who weren't big wine drinkers had a great day!
Beautiful day in the countryside

We had the pleasure of being the first tour after lockdown. Justin and Nicola were very adaptable in navigating the new government guidelines whilst still delivering a wonderful experience letting you almost forget about COVID-19. We were a group of expat couples looking to explore the countryside and taste some good English wines. A number of us have been on other wine tours and tastings and this one still surprised us. We learned about Biodynamic wines at Sedlescombe, while a bit “out there” in methodology it was interesting to see how green & sustainable the process could be. The owners of Oastbrook were some of the most welcoming and larger than life people I’ve ever met. The winemaker, America, and her husband have grand plans for the space and are already producing with quality. Finally, we stopped at Woodchurch and admired the beautiful vineyard, nice terrace and sampled delicious wine from another small producer. On the day we had 11 tastings and a full glass of wine with our lunch. Overall we felt satisfied with the value.

Nicola did a great job organising a private wine tour for us to three very different vineyards. We really enjoyed our tour guide, Martin, who kept us laughing and learning lots all day. Thank you!
