We offer a variety of tours and tastings and are open 7 days a week, all year round. Gift certificates are available for all of our tours.
Our Discovery and Estate Tours are the ideal way to spend an afternoon unwinding in the countryside with a glass in hand, learning about the award-winning Gusbourne Estate wines. After taking in the picturesque vineyards and winery, your guests will enjoy a range of wines paired with a delicious lunch. The tutored tasting gives exclusive access to some special wines that don’t feature in our standard hosted tour – rare releases, older vintages and limited editions.
An elegant sharing menu is included in our Discovery Tours and for the Estate Tour, a seasonal 3-course lunch. Both are prepared with locally sourced ingredients and served to complement the wines your guests will be drinking.

Why We Blind Taste Our Base Wines
A lot happens to a Gusbourne wine in its journey from harvest to bottle. One important stage is putting our base wines to the test. Each year our winemaking team blind tastes and meticulously analyses every wine before deciding the carefully crafted blends that each of our labels will carry. It’s a fascinating process that takes skill, experience and the ability to imagine a wine’s potential in every vintage year.
Bottling the Bubbles
Some elements of winemaking are widely recognisable. Everyone knows what pruning and harvest look like, photos abound. But once the grapes have been pressed in the winery and the young wine stored to mature, what happens next? When is it transferred to bottle? How do we know the optimum moment for release? Here we reveal the less public part of the winemaker's art.
