COVID UPDATE, April 2021. We'll be opening our doors again at the Winery from Weds 31st March in time for the Easter bank holiday weekend. The team will initially be offering retail sales only with Covid secure measures in place. You’ll be able to enjoy the outside spaces and vineyards at your leisure. Over the coming months we will be able to offer guided tours, experiences and dining as the rules allow. For now the vineyard shop will be open 5 days a week (Weds to Sun) from 10am to 5pm. If you have an existing booking with us prior to 17 May this will be cancelled and guests invited to rebook.
