Visits & Tours

“Nutbourne is a perfect place to visit on a summer’s day.”

We are once again offering visits to the vineyard, scheduled tours
and pre-booked picnics, with Covid-19 safety policies in place.

Vineyard Voucher Day Tour

Vineyard Trail

Open now – Tuesday to Saturday – Free of charge

Follow our self-guided trail around the vines to discover the different grapes we grow at Nutbourne Vineyards and our wonderful views of the South Downs. Look out for our cave nestled in the hillside and oak sculpture amongst the vines – you might also spot a llama along the way. Our Windmill and Wine Lodge are open, besides our new veranda Cellar Door, where you can purchase our wines by the glass to sample or buy bottles to take home.
