Walking in the vineyards

Tours

Visit us in the Garden of England to enjoy one of our five unique wine tour and tasting experiences.

Enjoy one of our hosted tours and find out what makes our corner of England so special for winemaking. The tour takes in the beautiful vineyards, the winery, and ends in the luxurious tasting room with a tutored wine tasting.

This experience is priced at £25 per person.

The Gusbourne Discovery tasting is the ideal way to experience an extended range of Gusbourne wines, and for the first time, we will be pairing them with a delicious lunch.

Arrive at 11am for refreshments, before enjoying a full tour of the vineyards and winery. We will then settle down in our cosy tasting room, overlooking the beautiful vineyards for a tutored tasting including some special wines that don’t feature in our standard hosted tour – rare releases, older vintages and limited editions. We will then serve a fresh and seasonal lunch menu, designed to complement the wines. We expect to be finished at 3pm.

This experience is priced at £70 per person.

Our Estate Tour is the ideal way to spend an afternoon unwinding in the countryside with a glass in hand, learning about the award-winning Gusbourne Estate wines. Your day will begin with welcome drinks and nibbles at The Nest, before enjoying a full tour of the estate and vineyards. After learning about the processes involved in making our exquisite wines, you will join us in our picturesque tasting room overlooking the vines to try them.

The tutored tasting gives you exclusive access to some special wines that don’t feature in our standard hosted tour – rare releases, older vintages and limited editions. A seasonal 3-course lunch prepared with locally sourced ingredients will be served to complement the eight wines you will be drinking.

This experience is priced at £95 per person.

Join Gusbourne Head Winemaker Charlie Holland on Saturday 28th March for an exclusive lunch at The Nest, with the opportunity to taste several new Gusbourne wines before they have been released.

Beginning at 11am with a tour around the Gusbourne cellar, Charlie will give you a behind-the-scenes introduction to how Gusbourne wines are made, and may even select some samples of our newest wines for you to taste in the cellar. We will then sit down in our beautiful tasting room for an exclusive wine tasting, accompanied by a casual lunch. Amongst other wines, Charlie will be pouring a selection of new wines to be released later this year:

Gusbourne Cherry Garden Rosé 2019 (still rosé)

Gusbourne Blanc de Noirs 2016 (sparkling)

Gusbourne Pinot Noir 2018 (still red)

This exclusive lunch is priced at £95 per person.

For the first time, and to celebrate the launch of our still Cherry Garden Rosé 2019, we are hosting a lunch event focusing exclusively on our still rosé, white and red wines. These are wines that we make in very small quantities and are only available from The Nest. Having been delighted with the quality in recent vintages, we have designed this event to showcase the wines we can now produce from our corner of the Garden of England. Starting with a welcome glass of rosé, the winemaking team will give an introduction to still winemaking, before leading a leisurely wine tasting and lunch in our tasting room. Amongst others, we will be pouring a selection of our acclaimed still wines:

  • Gusbourne Cherry Garden Rosé 2019
  • A vertical tasting of Gusbourne Guinevere Chardonnay, exploring the differences between the 2016, 2017 and 2018 vintages
  • Gusbourne 809 Chardonnay 2018, illustrating a completely different expression of Chardonnay
  • A vertical tasting of Gusbourne Pinot Noir, exploring the 2016 and 2018 vintages
