Join a fascinating tour of Simpsons Wine Estate, situated in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Charles & Ruth Simpson have made award-winning wines at Domaine Sainte Rose, their stunning, southern French property, for the past 17 years. In 2014 they brought their expertise and savoir-faire back to the UK establishing Simpsons Wine Estate in Barham, Kent, with an aspiration to create the finest quality Method Traditional English sparkling wine.
The visit will begin with a walking tour of The Roman Road vineyard, where you will learn how the vines are planted, trained, nurtured and harvested. You will then return to the state-of-the-art winery, where you will be guided through the entire Method Traditional winemaking process.
Your tour will culminate in a very special tasting of wines from Simpsons' Wine Estate in the comfort of the elegant Glass House Tasting Room. No visit to Simpsons Wine Estate is complete without a trip down the 'Fruit Chute' helter-skelter.
(Please be aware that The Glass House Tasting Room is situated up 2 flights of stairs. We advise all our guests to drink sensibly and consider means of transport when attending our events. This event is for over 18's only.)
As we look towards the long, hazy summer evenings, we invite you to join one of our evening tour and tastings.
The experience will begin with a walk to The Roman Road Vineyard, where you will learn about how the vines are grown and harvested whilst sampling Simpsons’ Wine Estate flagship sparkling wine, the Chalklands Classic Cuvée.
Returning to the Winery, we will then explain the fascinating wine-making process from the comfortable vantage point of The Glass House Tasting Room, whilst you enjoy a delicious tasting of Simpsons’ current release wines.
In addition, Macknade Fine Foods, the South East’s leading food hall in Faversham, will be providing a delectable platter of locally-sourced cheese and charcuterie to enhance your appreciation of the wines.
The evening will finish with a flourish, with a trip down our helter-skelter!
