Special Occasions

Nutbourne creates very special private daytime events for select occasions.
These can be combined with vineyard tours or we can offer complete exclusivity for small private weddings.
We are not, however, a party venue and do not do late evenings, loud music or dancing.

Peter Gladwin, who together with his wife Bridget owns the vineyard, has spent his whole working life in hospitality, operating everything from West End Restaurants to events for HM the Queen at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.
As a family of chefs and with support from our famous London-based Gladwin restaurants, we offer the finest cuisine possible using local Sussex produce. This is combined with a stunning setting, superb wines from the estate, and hospitality that is second to none.

The beautifully decorated Raj Tent seats up to 60 guests and opens onto a wonderful platform with views over the vines to the South Downs. The timber wine lodge seats up to 40 guests. Nestled within the vines, it sits adjacent to an old windmill with a lovely chill-out area and wrap-around balcony. Other features include a tractor-drawn carriage for guests’ arrival, vineyard and winery tours, a surprise drinks reception by the lakeside and open fire vinewood cooking.

We will be delighted to provide you with a bespoke proposal and detailed costing for your special day.
