“Furleigh Estate”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

What a find this place was. We booked to go on one of Furleigh Estate’s vineyard and winery tours in Dorset which turned out to be a fantastic day out ! We were greeted by Nick who conducted the tour and looked after us throughout the day. The tour started with a brief history of Furleigh Estate, followed by an extremely informative tour of the vines in an absolutely stunning setting. We were then taken round the very impressive winery, and were told how the still and sparkling wines were made. The tour ended with a tutored tasting of three wines, two of which were sparkling. The tour was so interesting, and delivered without any of the stuffiness you sometimes get. We were encouraged to ask questions, although just about everything you could possibly have wanted to know was included to be honest. The wines were a revelation, have won a multitude of awards, and no wonder. The cost was £9 each, which was an absolute bargain. I would encourage anyone who gets the chance to go on this tour, I’ve been on a lot and this was the best !

“Never knew English Wine was so good!!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Stayed recently at a hotel in Charmouth where we tried wine from this vineyard so just had to visit. What a great professional set up but even more impressive the actual wines. I never knew English wines had got to such a level and was really impressed mostly with their sparkling which tasted every bit as good (better) than champagnes - we have already decided to buy some for our daughters wedding next year !
