Picnics for summer 2020 have now completely sold out. We look forward to bringing them back again for summer 2021.
We have created dedicated picnic spots across our Boot Hill and Commanders vineyards where you will enjoy a delicious picnic that includes a bottle of Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2016. You can expect the best of Kent and Sussex across a selection of three artisanal picnic basket options – charcuterie, seafood and vegetarian.
Every box will feature local cheeses, dried fruits, walnuts, fresh and marinated vegetables, seasonal hummus and a sweet spiced cider-apple chutney to go with the cheese. In the seafood and charcuterie versions, there is smoked fish and a selection of homemade charcuterie of local pork shoulder and duck breast. All picnics are accompanied by a bottle of Brut Reserve 2016, including reusable glasses and bag for you to take home with you.
Please note when booking that the price listed of £80 is for a two-person picnic. When checking out, please only enter in ‘1’ for the number of guests attending if you are booking one two-person picnic. On your booked date, you can arrive at your own leisure between 11.30 and 13:30. When you book your picnic, we will email to ask which basket - charcuterie, seafood or vegetarian - you would like.
Picnic bookings may be transferred up to one week prior to booked date, subject to availability. Due to the outdoor nature of these events, it is recommended to bring suitable clothing & footwear for your time at Gusbourne.
