Court Garden Winery & Vineyard Tours

As featured on: visit-brighton logo The official tourism guide to Brighton.

Enjoy a wonderful opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Court Garden Vineyard and Winery and find out how this family-run, single-estate vineyard has been growing grapes and producing wine since 2005.

All the wines made at Court Garden are produced using traditional grape varieties grown on a beautiful south-facing slope in soil that is very similar to that of north-east France – the region most commonly associated with Champagne. Discover how the maritime climate of this part of Sussex influences the kinds of grape that can be grown, and the flavours they produce.

We offer two standard tours, both priced at £16 per person, one of which should be available most Saturdays.

If you'd like to give a dated tour as a gift, we can send you a voucher with a gift card for an extra £1.25. Undated gift-vouchers are also available.

On the way back we call in at the winery and the rudiments of sparkling wine production are introduced along with with the processes and equipment used. Back in the tasting room there is a comparative tasting with two of our English Sparkling Wines.
