Private Tours of the Vineyards of Hampshire and the Surrey Hills
We offer small private group tours of award-winning sparkling wine vineyards and wineries in Hampshire and the Surrey Hills for up to six people, travelling in comfort in our Land Rover Discovery.
Clive will pick you up from your choice of location, including Guildford station just 30 mins from London (see additional details below) and take you through the beautiful scenery and thatched-cottage villages of the Surrey Hills, Hampshire and the South Downs National Park to visit award-winning wineries and vineyards, some not normally open to the public.
Full-day tours cost £500 for your private group of up to six people or for an ideal present, you can also buy a voucher for a tour and the lucky recipient can arrange the date later on. Please contact us if you would like more details.
Our tours allow you to enjoy the day at your own pace and with me as your designated driver for maximum enjoyment, ideal for sampling potential wines for a wedding or event, or simply for a great day out with beautiful scenery and loads of photo-opportunities!
- Visits to four award-winning wineries, sampling their sparkling wines with an opportunity to buy wine to bring home.
- All tour and tasting fees. Tours typically include a tour of at least one winery where you can learn about the process of making English Sparkling Wine and at least one Vineyard to see the work that goes into growing the perfect grapes but the itinerary can also be adjusted to the requirements of your private group plus is dependent on vineyard availability.
- Pick up at your choice of location within approximately 30 miles of Petersfield (see list of major towns, ports and train connections to London, below)
- No 'drink-drive' worries
Tours start with a pick up around 10am (exact time to suit you and taking into account vineyard availability)
- Lunch (at your own cost) will be arranged at one of a selection of traditional country pubs, a vineyard or a picnic if the weather is kind. Lunch always includes a complimentary bottle of another of Hampshire's great sparkling wines.
Pricing: £500 for up to six people.
We can collect your group and start the tour from virtually anywhere within a 30 mile radius of Petersfield in the heart of the South Downs. Pickup locations include Southampton, Winchester, Andover, Basingstoke, Farnham, Guildford (the easiest option from London), Chichester, Hayling Island and Portsmouth. All of these towns have train stations with good connections to London and Southampton also has an airport as well as the cruise port.
Any number of passengers up to six people is fine. The fifth and sixth customers are accommodated in the two full-size seats in the third row of the Discovery 5's 'stadium-seating' (reducing luggage space to the equivalent of four cases of wine!). See details here.
