About
Sedlescombe is England's oldest organic vineyard, first established 1979 by Roy Cook. It's also home to the oldest Biodynamic vines in England, first certified in 2010. Sedlescombe is also believed to be the first English vineyard to win an international award for an English still red wine (2013). Set deep in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in the heart of '1066 Country' there are stunning countryside views from the vineyard and lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Individual visitors and small groups are welcome to pop in for a self-guided stroll through the vines & woodland, or why not pre-book a guided tour and tasting and check out the catering options available! All tours include a tasting of Sedlescombe's range of international award-winning wines, and wine can be purchased from the cellar door.

Lovely wine tour
Jul 2021
Great, informative, and interesting tour from Christopher, who took us round the vineyard and the winery and showed us loads. Got to taste plenty of wines, some were really interesting! I liked the sparkling wines. The ploughmans after the tour was fantastic! Incredible local cheeses, and an unbeatable sausage roll!

Stopped here on my way home from a weekend in Romney. The timing of the tour didn't work for me so I just did a tasting and lunch. Tried 3 different wines, which were all nice but the sparkling was best, and had a lovely ploughmans with High Weald cheese. All organic and biodynamic. Enjoyed a wander around the vines and the information about making fertilisers. Will definitely come back with some friends and do the full tour some day!

How to Appreciate Wine
Apr 2021
We were All treated to a "Highly Informative Vine Yard Experience" The Ploughman`s Lunch along with Hot Drink(s) was well received. The Weather was "Inclement. " Our Host`s" tailored the the visit to suit the Weather condition(s), for which we commend them both (L & E) The Site was well presented & "spotless." The Knowledge both of the Product(s) & the Vine Yard was Outstanding. The "Tasting(s) were enjoyable but then these Wine Product(s) are not the normal "off the Shelf" purchase(s). I recommend a "Tour & Tasting."

Fascinating and beautiful vineyard - well worth a visit.
Oct 2020
Friends bought me a birthday voucher for the deluxe vineyard tour and lunch at Sedlescombe.

It's an inspiring and fascinating place set in the beautiful and tranquil rolling Sussex countryside. The vineyard tour, expertly conducted by Adele, explained the biodynamic and organic processes that produce the wine.

We then got to taste the wine: Adele talked us through 2 whites, 1 rose and a red, plus the sparkling - which I have to say is probably one of the best I have ever had.

After that came a delicious ploughmans lunch with local cheeses and homemade chutney.

The staff were all lovely, charming and knowledgeable, and the vineyard itself was so beautiful.

We bought some wines to take home, and treated ourselves to two of the exquisite small-size glasses too.

A sunny day heightened our visit to Sedlescombe- we were early and welcomed by a lovely lady who had not long joined the staff team ( don’t have her name but certainly an asset!) The tour was both interesting and informative- Chris was very listenable and knowledgeable- tasting was well managed and we enjoyed our ploughman’s lunch too.

Wonderful!
Sep 2020
We booked a tour and wine tasting followed by lunch. Price was very reasonable. The tour was fascinating covering the history of this pioneering vineyard as well as the organic and biodynamic methods they use. The staff were very knowledge, friendly and welcoming to us and our young children. It was a sunny day so we had lunch outside the stylish new tasting rooms which was a beautiful quiet spot. The wines themselves were excellent and different to the standard varieties that most local vineyards offer. Overall I would fully recommend Sedlescombe as an interesting and friendly alternative to touring the bigger vineyards.
