Whether you’re a Kent native or visiting from afar, there’s so much to see and do in the Garden of England that you’ll never get bored. We also (apparently) get more sunshine in this corner of the country than any other

Over the last year, whilst continuing to work with the Kent vineyards we have adapted our business ‘Wine Tours of Kent’ to offer virtual wine tastings at home. We now transport you virtually to the Kent vineyards, where you can taste a selection of still and sparkling wines from stops on our tours. Since launching our virtual tastings, we have hosted many groups of friends and family in different households, couples celebrating special occasions and corporate groups, bringing teams and customers across the UK together. We have a selection of wine tasting packages listed on our virtual wine tasting page and are also offering bespoke packages for customers that would

Our bespoke private Wine Tours of Kent are popular with groups of ladies and hen parties looking to experience a fun day out with a difference. We collect guests from their preferred location, transporting you through the Kent countryside to 3 award winning vineyards. Learn about English wine amongst the picturesque settings, enjoy a traditional country pub lunch, as well as tasting a range of still and sparkling wines at each stop.
