Luxury English Wine Tours
England is packed with charm: celebrated for being the birthplace of Shakespeare, home to some of the quaintest villages across the lands, and culture capital of the world — and, to those in the know, award-winning makers of sparkling wine alongside our friends across the Channel in Champagne.
As the summers grow warmer and the climate becomes more suitable to wine-making, the English wine industry is leaping from strength to strength. Just a few hours outside of the country’s elite capital lie hundreds of magnificent vineyards waiting to be discovered by wine devotees. Kent and Sussex are among the well-known spots for England’s very own booming viticulture, boasting critically acclaimed bottles of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Bacchus, and most famously matching the best of sparkling wines in continental Europe.
For an experience like no other, and adrift England’s very own shores, nothing quite beats a visit to a winery where you’ll discover the processes behind growing and blending award-winning wines, embark on a scenic frolic in the vineyards, and, of course, taste the winery’s prestigious cuvées and blancs de blanc to get a sense for yourself of exactly how the exquisite end product holds up amid its French peers.
You may opt to complete the blissfulness with a stay in a luxury country house manor in the shire, while others opt to stay at an enticing five-star hotel in buzzing metropolis London — whichever you desire, tempting gourmet restaurants with locally homegrown products and heavenly wine pairings aplenty will see you dining like royalty during your getaway.
