Visits & Tours

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

We welcome visitors to the vineyard and cellar door,
offering a trail through the vines and wine by the glass.

Vineyard Voucher Day Tour

Vineyard Trail

Open – Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm – Free of charge

Follow our self-guided trail around the vines to discover how we grow grapes and explore special little spots throughout the vineyard. Look out for the vine quiz on our information signs, bio-diverse wild strips promoting insect and bird life and an ancient oak sculpture in pride of place amongst the vines – you might also spot our family of alpacas or breeding wild fowl along the way. The Windmill, Viewing Platform and Wine Lodge are great locations to enjoy views of the South Downs. Our veranda Cellar Door is open to buy wine by the glass or bottles to take home.
