Visits & Tours

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

We welcome visitors to the vineyard and cellar door all year round.
In Winter you can wander through the vines along our vineyard trail, take in the views from the windmill balcony and pick up a bottle or two to take away.

Vineyard Voucher Day Tour

Vineyard Trail

Open – Monday to Friday, 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 to take home.
