BLUEBELL VINEYARD & ESTATE
We offer small group tours of the vineyard and winery, followed by a tasting of our wines. This usually lasts about 90 minutes and the tours are relaxed and informal; we have a walk around the Estate and explain some of the vineyard activities we undertake in order to produce fruit of the best quality, before a visit to the winery where we explain the differences between the production of still and sparkling wine.
We finish with a tutored tasting of our award-winning current releases in our Tasting Room.
We keep our general small group tours to a maximum of 10 people per group and the price of the tour is £16 per person and we request a £10 deposit per person. https://www.bluebellvineyard.org/
