Vineyards and wineries

Our dry and sunny West Sussex climate is ideal for wine production, and the wineries here are becoming increasingly well-known for their award-winning vintages. Offering a warm welcome to visitors, many vineyards have fascinating tours and tastings, delicious local food and evening events, some even have lodges where you can stay the night. Learn all about the viticulture and enjoy a world-class sparkling white overlooking row upon row of green vines ripening in the sunlight. Cheers!
