    Surprise Birthday Break with Fizz and Chips!
    We stayed in the Amberley Barn for 3 nights and attended the Fizz and Chips evening in the tasting room. We loved every minute of our stay, the accommodation was fantastic, as were the views from our bedroom balcony! The perfect place to relax, unwind and explore the Cotswolds. We took a walk through the vines, down into Nailsworth, then up to The Amberley Inn, where we had a bite to eat and a well deserved drink. The hills can be a little challenging, but so worth it for the views. Fizz and Chips was great, definitely recommended. Gail was super helpful before we even arrived. I preordered a few extras including breakfast hamper, charcuterie hamper and a bottle of sparkling wine as we were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday - he loved it all and was so surprised at how lovely the barn was. The small box of cakes were delicious and a lovely touch, thank you. We really didn’t want to leave. Thank you so much for making our stay a memorable one, we will definitely be back soon. 😊

    Excellent day out to celebrate Birthday.
    Went as part of sisters birthday celebration and all enjoyed the day. Host (Dillon I think sorry if not) was excellent and very accommodating to assist my elderly mother, and had great knowledge. Great value for money and excellent wine, and hope to return with some other family members maybe for one of the special events.

    Sparkling wine tour
    We visited Woodchester Valley Vineyard for the sparkling wine tour to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The tour was very informative, but not too detailed that it went over the heads of two people who like to drink wine and don’t know much else. We tasted 5 different wines which were lovely and were provided with crisps and nuts too. Harriet, our tour guide, was excellent - warm, attentive and approachable. She had a great sense of humour which just made the tour all the more fun. Would definitely recommend as a day out to anyone.

    Fantastic wine tasting, tour and room with views for days
    We stayed at the vineyard in one of the “barns” and also did the tour with wine tasting. The accommodation is bright, clean and cosy with a huge bed! Really recommend booking the home cooked food rather than going out for dinner in a taxi, as they are not very reliable. The tour was really interesting and you are given lots of different wines to try as well as hearing the history of the vineyard and an explanation of the process of making the wine. All in all, a fantastic experience, can’t wait to come back in the summer.

    Perfect weekend!!
    Such a pleasure to have had the opportunity to visit Woodchester Vineyard. We usually travel over 3 hours when we eventually have the opportunity for a break away but to find this place practically on our doorstep was a welcome surprise. Amazing experience from booking to checkout. All staff were extremely friendly, welcoming, informative and happy to help. Particularly Gail, Caroline, Rachel and housekeeping (sorry we didn’t catch the ladies name). The wine tasting, tour and lunch exceeded our expectations as did the accommodation and breakfast hamper. It’s clear that Woodchester Vineyard pride themselves on high quality and everyone involved is passionate about what they do. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for you. We will most certainly be visiting again and will be highly recommending a visit to all our friends and family. Best wishes Nikki & Alex

    Great outing
    What a great morning. Excellent talk by Greg and wine tasting with Rachel followed by delicious lunch. All that was required afterwards was a log fire and a sofa to curl up on. However had to return home. Would highly recommend.

    Wine tour and overnight accommodation
    We had an engaging and knowledgeable guide in this extremely well organised tour of Woodchester Valley Vineyard. Wine tasting was very enjoyable and great value with 5 generous samples of different wines. We had the advantage of staying in the attached Amberley accommodation. This is outstanding and done to a very high standard with an amazing level of attention to detail. Very highly recommended

    A must for wine lovers - English wines are a hidden gem at Woodchester Valley
    We had a voucher bought for us for lunch and a tour and wine tasting, for both of our birthdays. Elizabeth who did the tour and tasting was amazing she was informative about English wines and really knew her stuff and how they make excellent wine at Woodchester Valley, the sparking wines they make are unbelievable!! Can’t wait to try the sav blanc which won awards for the best in the world, no wonder it was a sell Out. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who loves wine, the environment is lovely, lucky for us the sun was shining which did help, the lunch was excellent with all locally produced meats, bread, cheese, etc, all tasty yummy the tomatoes we as if you had just picked them they went so well with the cheese. The sour dough bread was delightful, you can purchase more wine while your eating lunch (you get one glass with the experience) - even after we sat outside in the sunshine and had a glass of the bubbles and ending up buying three bottles to take home.

    Perfect present
    My first impression was what a magical setting. The Woodchester Valley is just stunning. We were given a warm welcome by our hosts and a welcome drink. It was fun learning how to taste and we both loved the stroll around the vineyard. The talk was fascinating and it was obvious that everyone who works there is passionate about what they do. So much love and care goes into the process of producing the wine. We went back and tried another four wines, all amazing. They are v generous with samples so best to get a taxi or someone to pick you up after to make the most of the experience! It was a delightful afternoon and the perfect Christmas present.

Last night we spent a wonderful couple of hours at Woodchester Valley Vineyard enjoying their Fizz & Chip night. We sampled 3 delicious sparkling wines from their range & enjoyed the Fish & Chip supper that was provided by Simpsons in Stroud. The wines catered well for a variety of occasions but our personal favourite was the Reserve Brut - we came away with 3 bottles to enjoy for special occasions later this year (if it lasts that long). The talk & tasting was really informative. I’d highly recommend the evening for both couples & friends.

Dog walk and wine tasting - what a combo! The team who led us were friendly and gave us very interesting insights into the vineyard and the 3 wines we sampled. Lovely to walk with a small group of dog walkers around the vineyard. Had a super time.

We had a fantastic afternoon touring the vineyard, seeing the winemaking process and then enjoying a generous tasting!
The tour guide was friendly, welcoming, professional, knowledgeable and clearly excited about wine in general.
Well worth the price and I’m sure we’ll be back again in summer. Icy views were great but it will be amazing to see the vines fully grown with lots of grapes.

Combined stay for two nights plus vineyard tour. The accommodation was incredible - two story apartment with several balconies and terraces nestled into the vineyards. Wonderful bedroom with dual aspect, amazing bathroom; TV upstairs and downstairs, sky included; neat little kitchen with wine chiller for (of course)their wine. So quiet - starlit nights, cosy living room with gas log burner. Truly amazing and very different. Purple this with the wine tour and tasting and it’s a perfect match. The tasting was great - we bought huge quantities afterwards 👍 The tour and history a real eye opener - Elizabeth was brilliant!

We’d never toured a vineyard and winery before. The owners and their team were warmly welcoming and combined huge knowledge with a highly accessible presentation and a selection of delicious wines to taste. The site has fine views and everything on it is beautifully designed and maintained. It was wonderful to see such a great example of UK enterprise.

Lovely day out in the company of Declan and Emma!

This is an amazing experience from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave!

Beautiful, beautiful place.

Declan is as knowledgeable as he is enthusiastic and brilliant and taking you through every step from planting to drinking.

The tasting was superb as was the product and opened our eyes as to English wine!

Congratulations to the owners and staff on producing something really special and giving great enjoyment and value to your visitors!

We booked Woodchester Valley Vineyard for a wine tasting session at our business for a group of 30 clients. Harriet from the Vineyard was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Our guests found Harriet to be very friendly and approachable and they absolutely loved the wines. In particular the BACCHUS 2021 was very popular and was still being talked about at dinner! I would personally recommend the PINOT NOIR PRÉCOCE 2021 for red wine drinkers too.

The vineyard provided an adequate tour and premium wine tasting of five varieties that are produced at the vineyard. The wines themselves were fantastic, we are big advocates of British wine and found that these are brilliant examples.

However, there are a few work on points from our experience that I believe would enhance the tour and tasting.

The premium tour states that it includes nibbles but these were extremely small and did not compliment the wines at all. Given that during the tasting there were pairing notes it would have been wonderful to experience small samples of these and showcase how they enhance the wines. We would much rather have paid additional for this as opposed to food that detracted from the wines.

In addition, the tour guide that took us around was very abrupt, verging on rude & condescending to several people on the tour who asked questions which made me feel uncomfortable, unable to ask questions relating to the tasting and eager to leave once the tasting finished. She also did not engage with us at all during the tasting despite talking to all of the other tables around us which again made us feel as though she didn't think we were worthy of learning about the vineyards products.

Finally, I felt that the tasting was extremely rushed. I had not even got half way through each glass before the next one was arriving and being talked about. I wasn't willing to rush through the wine as I wanted to fully appreciate each wine and take tasting notes which I did not have time to do. The tour in total was advertised at 1hr45 but was shorter which was a shame as the experience just felt rushed and lacking an interpersonal touch.

For the price, the tour was enjoyable however compared to all other tastings that we have participated on I did find that this tour was lacking in certain areas but does have the potential to be excellent if improvements are made.
