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 vineyard trail, scheduled tours and picnics.

Vineyard Voucher Day Tour

Vineyard Trail

Open – Tuesday to Saturday – 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.

During the summer months we host guided tours and tastings led by an expert guide. Tours begin with tea, coffee and home-made cakes. You will then be taken on an informative walk along the vineyard trail, followed by an introduction to the winery, with each step of the wine making process explained. The tour concludes with a tutored tasting of our award-winning Sparkling and Still wines, seated within the Wine Lodge.
