Finding a day out that lives up to grape expectations can be tough.
Luckily we have something which is up to the challenge…
Today’s deal is 90-Minute Wine Tour with Personal Tasting & Glass of Wine @ Adgestone Vineyards, Adgestone, for only £8.95 per person
Want to impress your friends at the next get together with your expert knowledge of wine making and tasting techniques?
Or just wondered how on earth grapes get from a vine and onto the shelf as a bottle of wine?
In an area of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular sea views, Adgestone Vineyard is a working vineyard nestled on the south facing slopes of Brading Down.
Harvesting grapes from the chalky soil, Adgestone complete every part of the wine making process.
Learn about the whole grape to glass experience, thanks to the latest in digital audio technology.
You will also be among the first to hear about their latest fizzy wine – Something Blue
You will be guided around the 10-acre site amongst the many varieties of vines. You’ll learn all aspects of viticulture, the growing season and some interesting history leading up to the production of successful modern English wines.
Heading into one of the last remaining subterranean commercial cellars, you will see the vast array of fermentation vats and bottling equipment, the grape press and labelling process.
Your tour will leave you amazed at the process involved in turning a small plant into an award-winning English wine.
If you are coming with a young family, don’t worry the kids will love it too. As you listen to the tour, they’ll be searching for cartoon and film characters on a treasure hunt. Who knows, if they do well, they may even win a packet of sweets!
But that’s not the end of your tour, you still need to become the expert sommelier. A 30-minute wine tasting session will teach you tasting techniques, suggest what to look for in English wines and give you the chance to sample all six wines from the range.
You’ll be swirling and slurping before you know it – just try not to laugh too much on the first few attempts.
