We’ve selected our favourite vineyards and wineries that we recommend you visit in 2019.

1. Nyetimber, West Chiltington

Nyetimber was bought by Eric Heerema, a wealthy dutch investment banker, who has expanded production to more than 650,000 bottles across seven vineyards. In 2009 their Classic Cuvée received the top award at the Sparkling Wine Championships, beating off competition from a number of well known Champagne houses in the process.

With a pursuit of creating world class wines of uncompromising quality, Gusbourne is a stunning English wine estate consisting of 61 hectares in Kent and a further 32 in West Sussex situated near Goodwood Estate.

3. Hush Heath, Staplehurst

Hush Heath is a gorgeous, award winning vineyard based near Staplehurst in the Weald of Kent, established by entrepreneur Richard Balfour-Lynn in 2010. You can visit seven days a week to take a self guided tour around their vineyards and apple orchards followed by a tutored tasting without charge.
