Harvest is the most exciting time of the year to visit our Sussex Vineyard. To celebrate, we are opening our Flint Barns Courtyard for lunch and dinner from Thursday 1st October to Sunday 8th November as a restaurant. Head Chef, Chris Bailey’s menu will be using ingredients guided by the season and the Sussex region, inspired by the Vineyard and cooked over an open fire in the Courtyard.
Join us in front of the fire for lemon sole cooked over last year's vines, wood roasted local game with pinot noir grapes and crab rarebit. The Courtyard is covered with a marquee structure which provides a roof and insulation for the unpredictable British weather.

This staycation package includes:
You can purchase our portfolio of Sussex Sparkling wines, premium still wines and Seven Sisters spirits at our Cellar Door. As part of our harvest preparation, we have to plan ahead for the increased amount of Vineyard activity around the Winery. Increased activity means increased safety precautions on the Estate.
With this in mind, over the harvest period, our Cellar Door shop will relocate to The Flint Barns Snug area. See directions here.
Open: Monday to Sunday, 11am – 5pm
