Launching the West Sussex Wine Tour

West Sussex Wine Tour group The inaugural West Sussex Wine Tour group at Nutbourne Vineyard

We’re very excited to share that we’re unveiling a brand new addition to our tours – the West Sussex Wine Tour!

And that’s not all! We’re launching another five new tours of the Horsham District. These tours invite both locals and visitors to the area to explore the region’s finest food and drink producers, many of which are located in stunning venues.

A Day of Vineyard Hopping

The West Sussex Wine Tour includes three top-notch vineyards: Wiston Estate, Kinsbrook Vineyard, and Nutbourne Vineyard. Each one has its own unique charm, style, and of course, delicious wines.

And the best part? You don’t need to worry about driving. You’ll be chauffeured around in an executive mini-coach, collected and dropped-off at Horsham Rail Station, or from a departure point of your choice.

A Little About Each Vineyard

  • Wiston Estate: Nestled on the South Downs, Wiston Estate encompasses an award-winning winery, Chalk restaurant and wine shop and has been producing some of the UK’s most celebrated sparkling wines since 2006.
  • Kinsbrook Vineyard: Led by some of the youngest vineyard owners in the country, Joe Beckett and Rebecca Dancer, Kinsbrook is all about inclusivity and sustainability. 
  • Nutbourne Vineyard: This family-run, boutique vineyard is a gem. Established in 1979 and owned by the Gladwin family, it features wildflower meadows, alpacas, lakes, and stunning vineyard trails.
