Vineyard Tours

We are always delighted to welcome visitors to our beautiful vineyard here in the heart of 1066 country in East Sussex.

Whether you want to just turn up and enjoy the countryside (self guided tours), or come en masse for a fully-tutored tour & tasting with one of our knowledgeable tour guides (group tours), we look forward to seeing you. Our range of gift vouchers provide a wonderful way of enjoying our informative and entertaining tours, either for yourself or as a great gift for friends or family. We also cater for coach parties.

If you have been given a voucher for a tour and tasting, please contact us on 01424 752501 or at sales@carr-taylor.co.uk for details and dates.

Self Guided Tours

Cost: £1.50 per person (children under 16 are free, no booking required) 

Self guided tours of our vineyard are available all year round, with no need to book in advance. You are welcome to enjoy as long or as short a trail as you like, and dogs (with their owners!) are very welcome here.

On arrival you will be given a leaflet which includes a map of the vineyard trail, which also takes you through the winery and bottling room, and includes a brief history of the vineyard and our wine making methods. There are also information boards dotted around the trail.

Afterwards you are welcome to return to the shop to enjoy a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and a delicious slice of cake. And of course, there will also be the opportunity to taste our wines, which is what we’re all about after all.

We close at 5pm and recommend arriving no later than 4pm for the trail, and no later than 3pm in winter time. (Remember your wellies if it’s been raining!)

Group Tours

Cost: £6.50 per person | OAPs: £5.50 per person | Or minimum charge (if your group is 14 or less): £69 BOOK NOW

Your visit begins with a tour around the vineyard with one of our experienced guides, who will be dedicated to your tour. They will entertain you with a brief history of English wine, the problems encountered and the basic differences between our vineyard and those in Europe.

You will also have the opportunity to visit the winery to see the vats and presses we use, and learn about some of our wine-making techniques. This is followed by a visit to the bottling room to see the machinery and learn about the specialist production of our Still and Sparkling Wines.

Finally (and most importantly), you will be given a tutored wine tasting of some of our wines and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Group vineyard tours must be booked in advance. A selection of lunch options is also available for groups, by prior arrangement.

We regularly welcome coach parties from all over the country, wanting to come and have a tour of our vineyard. Bookings must be made in advance to ensure that we have the space for you (as it can get extremely busy in peak times).

We also need to ensure that there is a tour guide available if your coach party would like to take advantage of the special condensed tour package (with tea/coffee and cake) that we offer to our regular coach visitors.
