About
Our family owned vineyard was established in 1972 and we produce award-winning red, white and sparkling English wine. We recently opened a new visitors centre with an enlarged cafe and retail shop and a fantastic viewing balcony overlooking 18 acres of vines. Why not come along and enjoy breakfast or lunch with friends and sample our wines? You can also book a guided tour & tasting (variety of dates and times available) or perhaps experience one of our popular wine masterclasses on a Saturday? We also run special events throughout the year, including fine-dining evenings and summer evening tours.

Amazing wine tasting
May 2021 • Couples
Had an amazing wine and cheese tasting tour at the vineyard, then had amazing service from Jamie who made sure we had all the wine and snacks we needed, he even helped us take photos in the vineyards! We’ll be back for more of the Lychgate Bacchus!

Amazing day!
Jun 2021 • Friends
We came here for a wine and cheese tasting tour, had a great time and learnt a lot. We then enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine on their terrace. We were mostly served by Jamie, who was super attentive and really made our time there great. Would 100% recommend.

Lovely Sussex attraction
May 2021 • Friends
My friend and I spent a lovely afternoon on a wine tasting tour. The beautiful weather was a bonus and our guide John was so knowledgeable. I am local but had no idea there was a lovely cafe here. The wine pairings were delicious and rounded off with a meze and dessert. Excellent way to spend an after noon.

Introduction Tour
May 2021
We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime for the Introduction wine tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer all of our questions. It was our first time visiting a vineyard and we felt like we learnt a lot!

We tasted three wines which were all delicious. We bought a couple of bottles afterwards which were reasonably priced. There are also a lot of locally-made snacks and gifts to purchase from the gift shop. We purchased the local cheese board for lunch which was lovely. Thank you!

Virtual Wine Tasting Delight
Apr 2021
My Partner and I did a virtual wine tasting tour with Bolney last Saturday. They sent us a bottle of their English sparkling, a sparkling rose and their Pinot Noir. After a bit of an issue getting on the Zoom call we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our guide, Helen Chesshire was excellent and not only knew about the wines but kept the conversation flowing and was a great host. For lockdown entertainment, it was super fun and would recommend.

Perfect little vineyard
Oct 2020
In my opinion this is one of Englands best vineyards. We arrived with no booking on a wet Wednesday and the staff could not have been more helpful. Despite being busy they found us a table for lunch but before then our server arranged a quick tasting for us. We initially chose 4 wines to try and in the end had about 8. All free and the server was clearly proud of Bolney and was keen for us to try the wine and make the best purchasing choice for us. We enjoyed the wines, all very English in style but Bolney has so much choice; 4 white sparkling wines, 3 sparkling roses, even a sparkling red; plenty of still whites and 2 different still reds. Not all were to our taste but we were delighted to choose and take home 4 different wines. Lunch was also very tasty. It wasn't the day to do a vineyard tour but the vineyards look lovely from the cafe and one day we'll have a walk around.

Don’t wined if I do...
Oct 2020 • Couples
We visited Bolney Wine Estate on a cross-country drive to see family. So glad we stopped- the staff were lovey and welcoming, and the wine flights were a great way to sample a variety of wines to discover our favourites. Needless to say we left with a case. Oh and a bottle of their gin, naturally. The food was also surprisingly good and the sun even made an appearance. Will be back!
