TOURS + TASTINGS

About our vineyard tour + tasting

We offer vineyard tours with our resident expert on the banks of the River Test in Hampshire.

Our vineyard tours run all year round. Our summer schedule runs from April to September and is the best time to visit.

 

Tours are available Friday to Sunday at 11am and 2pm during this time.

You can book tours & tastings for up to 10 people. Please contact us directly if you have a larger group.

Lunch options

After the tour you will then be treated to a relaxed tasting of two of our current range of wines in The Tasting Room, including our ‘Classic’ sparkling wine, and our ‘Dancer in Pink’ still rosé, both award winning English wines.

You can book your tour with or without lunch. For lunch there's something for everyone! Our options include cheeseboard, charcuterie, smoked trout, and trout paté.

The details

Children and dogs are welcome. We do not charge for children unless you would like us to provide them with lunch. 

 

If you wish to cancel or postpone your tour, please contact us by phone or email at least 24 hours in advance of your booking time. We cannot refund or rearrange within 24 hours. We adjust the tours for poor weather, however we will be in contact if we need to cancel completely.

Please arrive 5 - 10 minutes before your tour start time, so we can check you in and start the tour promptly. 

People on vineyard tour
  • What does the tour involve?
    Our tours begin with a walk in the vineyard, followed by a guided explanation of the wine-making process in our state-of-the-art winery. We finish with a tutored tasting of two wines (one sparkling, one still - 50ml of each).
  • What days do you run tours?
    Our public tours run Thursday to Sunday, starting at 11am. It is possible to organise private tours outside of this schedule.
  • Can we bring children and/or dogs?
    Yes, both are welcome on tours and in our Tasting Room. We don’t charge for children unless we provide food.
  • How long does the tour last?
    The tour itself lasts 1-1.5 hours depending on group size. With lunch approximately 2 hours.
  • I have a voucher to redeem, how does it work?
    If you have a physical card voucher with a 3 digit code on the back, please email sales@blackchalkwine.co.uk with you desired date and we will check availability. If you have a digital voucher via email, you can book your tour online. Head to www.blackchalkwine.co.uk/vineyard-tours-and-wine-tasting and select the appropriate tour. Select your date, and for tours with lunch, select your grazing boards on the following page. On the last page, enter your details and then add each voucher code (beginning with ‘V’) individually into the ‘add promo/voucher’ box. This will reduce your balance to zero, unless you have ordered extra lunch boards.
  • Is there accommodation nearby?
    There are a number of campsites in the area. For hotels, Andover and Stockbridge are a 10 minute drive. Alternatively Winchester is 15-20 minutes away. A separate company, Wild Escapes, have built four luxury treehouses in one of our vineyards. These are available to book at www.wildescapes.co.uk
  • Do you have a restaurant on-site?
    Our Tasting Room has a small kitchen that produces locally-sourced grazing platters (cheeseboards, charcuterie, smoked trout).
  • What wines do you produce and sell?
    We are predominately a sparkling wine producer. Our core range consists of our white sparkling - the Classic and our Pink Sparkling - the Wild Rose. We have a number of premium sparkling wines and also a range of still wines. We do not produce a red wine. Our wines are available to purchase in our Tasting Room or to purchase online https://www.blackchalkwine.co.uk/wine
