Rathfinny Wine Estate

Spring Treats

There are signs that Spring has arrived with groups of snowdrops at the foot of the trees on the Tye in Alfriston. We are celebrating its arrival with some fabulous new products and a luxury beauty event.

Sarah and Georgia have been hard at work sourcing new products for the Gun Room. Our aim is to bring aspects of the Sussex countryside into our shop, so that our products reflect the changing seasons, our natural resources and activities on the Estate.

As the weather warms up and birds begin to nest, we are stocking Magpie’s Birdy range which includes mugs, plates, tea towels, wash bags and an espresso set for the grown-ups, and some lovely suitcases for young children, all featuring robins, thrushes, blue tits and wagtails. For keen gardeners we have some beautifully designed products from Burgon and Ball.

Our newly opened Flint Barns offers the chance for rest and recuperation. To reflect this we are adding to our range of Noble Isle luxury bath products as well as bringing in new soaps, diffusers and votive candles from Sussex based Parkminster. We have cosy blankets in cheerful spring colours as well as walker companions, picnic blankets, thermoses and hip flasks.


Don’t forget if you are walking you can pop into the Gun Room for a wide range of takeaway drinks, snacks and chocolates. With the warmer weather our doors are always open and walkers are invited to stop by. We don’t mind muddy boots!

If you would like to book a Vineyard Tour, they are starting again at the end of this month, book for the London Conchord Ensemble Festival at Rathfinny Wine Estate (12-14th June), find out more about staying at The Flint Barns or simply come in to find out how our wine is progressing, we would be delighted to see you!

Lastly, we stock many wine related goods, not least of which is the Caudalie range of beauty products made from grapes. Caudalie is a prestigious range of natural cosmetics from France where it is well known and highly regarded. To celebrate Mother’s Day we are hosting a Caudalie Expert Day on Friday 13 March 10 – 4pm. Sign up for a mini-facial, skin consultation and a chance to try any of the products the Caudalie expert recommends for you. We have just received their new product, Premier Cru L’Eixir.


As it’s nearly Mother’s Day we thought a complimentary glass of Sussex Sparkling would go down well….. and the best news is – it’s absolutely free!

Please call the Gun Room on 01323 870022 or email gunroom@rathfinnyestate.com to book your place. There are limited places available – act now to secure one and give yourself or your mum a well-earned treat!
