Court Garden Vineyard Tour and Sparkling Wine Tasting

Welcome Back!

We are planning on resuming vineyard tours on Saturday 17th April, all being well with restriction easing. If any dates have to be cancelled due to a change in restrictions, tickets will be valid for a future date.

Public tours can be booked now for vineyard tours starting on Saturday 17th April at 11am and every Saturday thereafter.

We are limiting tour numbers to 24 and spaced out our tables for that. If there is demand for greater numbers we will announce additional tours. We welcome enquiries for private groups.

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.

Tours are led by experienced wine growers and wine makers, usually a member of the family. Tour guests are encouraged to ask questions, so each tour becomes a discussion rather than following a set routine, but will include:

  • a short welcome and introduction in the tasting room
  • a walk around the vineyard where we discuss the work that makes up the vineyard year. Warning: we talk a lot about the weather!
  • a visit to the winery to learn about wine-making
  • returning to the tasting room for a comparative tasting

We currently have three different guided tours:

Wine Tour A is our Vineyard and Sparkling Wine Tour which includes a thorough discussion of all the processes involved in wine-making plus a tasting of a range of Court Garden sparkling wine.

Wine Tour B includes a tasting of award-winning wines and cheese.

Wine Tour C culminates in our English Sparkling, Prosecco / Champagne taste-off.

Full tours are priced from £16 per person, with a tasting-only option at £12.

Simply click or tap, in the calendar below, on the tour of your choice to go to the tour’s booking page, where you can select the date and type of tour (full tour or tasting-only).

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 £2.50 (including postage). Undated gift-vouchers are also available.
