Visits & Tours

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

We are once again offering visits to the vineyard and scheduled tours,
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 new cave nestled in the hillside – you might also spot a llama along the way. Our Windmill and Wine Lodge are also open, besides our Cellar Door, where you can purchase our wines by the glass to sample or buy bottles to take home.
