English Wine Tasting Tours
30th May 2015
In the last 16 years English sparkling wines have won 14 international sparkling wine trophies – no other country has achieved this. This year is also predicted to be a vintage year for English and Welsh sparkling wine, helping grow the industry further.
With English Wine Tasting Tours, you’ll be collected from the heart of central London and whisked away on board our luxury coach to enjoy a full day of English Wine Tasting, winery tours and gastronomic food delights with food and wine pairing and a lunch packed full of fine English fare.
The tour takes in two of Kent’s most acclaimed wineries. The Hush Heath Estate who are undoubtedly most famous for their Balfour Brut Rosé sparkling wine, which is the chosen wine for British Airways first class passengers. Then the Chapel Down Winery, where you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d just stepped into a vineyard in Northern California, but no this is definitely England and sparkling wine at its best.
At both Vineyards guests will get to sample a full range of their wines and enjoy a guided tour of the winery and learn about the distilling process. Lunch takes place at The Goudhurst Inn where further English wines from small local Vineyards will be enjoyed and paired with local fare.
Nicola Boarer from English Wine Tasting Tours said ‘’We should all be celebrating English Wine and not only because it’s English but because it tastes so great! My ambition is to spread the word about the amazing English wine industry that we have literally growing up around us and make sure everyone has a fun day out in the process’’.
