Harvest Blending Tasting

We are delighted to offer a new and unique wine tasting experience this harvest. Learn about the history of Rathfinny and taste your way through the many steps it takes to make Traditional Method sparkling wine. Enjoy a walk among the vines with your tour guide (weather permitting) who will give you a first-hand insight into the progression of our harvest before sitting down for a blending tasting. In total you will taste four to five base wines (and try blending them together to make your own cuvée), before finally tasting a selection of four of our Sussex wines to gain an insight in the job of a winemaker.

October only | Time. 1.30pm and 3.30pm Tuesday- Sunday | Duration. 1hr 30mins in total
