Vineyard Tour and Tasting
The Warde family motto ‘Licet Esse Beatis’ means ‘permitted to be joyful’ and sits above the front door at Squerryes Court. This spirit has helped to shape the estate through the game-changers and entrepreneurs over the centuries and continues to define us in all that we do.
Join us over the growing season and enjoy a tour of our vineyard and learn about the 300 year old Squerryes Estate, the fascinating history of the spirit of our house, and the story of how a disagreement with a French Champagne House led to the Warde family planting vines on the North downs at the Gateway to the Garden of England.
Begin the tour by walking the vines with one of the Squerryes team and learn about what grapes we grow, why we grow them, and what makes our North Downs terroir so special. This will be followed by a tutored tasting of 4 wines from our portfolio in our tasting room. Your tasting will show our current release, our exclusive rosé, our first Blanc de blancs and our National champion vintage where you will learn about how the wine is made and how and why each one is unique.
Tours are timed perfectly for you to enjoy the experience pre-lunch or pre-dinner, so following your tasting why not take this opportunity to immerse yourself fully in the wine and food experience at Squerryes and book in to the restaurant after your tour and tasting.
We run our tours every weekend from late April through to October throughout the growing season so there is always a reason to come and see what the vines are doing and how this year’s vintage is progressing.
We will be running evening tours on Fridays and Saturdays, and late morning tours on Saturday and Sundays from late April. To book please follow the links below:
