April to September
Dine, Stay, Tour & Taste
Here’s your definitive guide to everything on offer this summer at Rathfinny Wine Estate.
Back by popular demand, but featuring a different menu to last summer, our Vineyard Picnics are available to book every Wednesday-Sunday.
Set on the secluded Flint Barns bank overlooking the Vineyard, guests can enjoy outdoor picnic hampers whilst soaking up the English summer sunshine (hopefully!) with a bottle of Sussex Sparkling wine. Tables and chairs provided.

Dine at the Tasting Room
Our Michelin Plate restaurant, located within our Winery, serves a menu of modern British cuisine. Head Chef, Chris Bailey and his team will be back, serving two and three-course lunches, Wednesday to Sunday, and tasting-menu experiences every Friday and Saturday evening. The balcony is also open for impromptu walk-ins to enjoy wine and nibbles overlooking the Vineyard.
If you would rather plan an impromptu visit and enjoy a more substantial bite, drop-by the Flint Barns and enjoy our antipasti plates, available to enjoy al fresco with a bottle of Sussex Sparkling wine on our grassy bank overlooking the vines. No need to pre-book.
Flint Barns Dining Room
This year we’ll be opening the Flint Barns Dining Room for evening meals, Wednesday – Saturday. Expect hearty, comforting and generous dishes in a relaxed setting.
Summer Estate Tours
Join us this summer for a tour of the Estate, where you will see how we turn our grapes into Sussex wines. During this enjoyable tour, you will learn how a typical year of growing vines and wine production progresses. Among the highlights are a visit to our RIBA nominated Winery to learn the process and care involved in making high quality sparkling wines, concluding with a guided tasting of our Sussex wines.
Visit the Cellar Door
Our Cellar Door shop is open everyday, 10am – 5pm so you can shop all of our Sussex wines and spirits. Don’t forget to pick up an Estate map to explore our walking trail. Dogs welcome!
