Discover the very best vineyard tours in Hampshire.  Our guide will reveal where you can visit, learn and most importantly taste the award winning wines produced in Hampshire. It is advised that at vineyard and wine tasting tours must be pre-booked.

Hampshire’s  vineyards are growing from strength to strength and producing high quality English sparkling and white wine, following the traditional method of wine making from the classic Champagne grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.  The quality of the wine is  helped by the warm climate of the county and similar chalky terrain to the Champagne region.

The three main areas for Vineyards in Hampshire are predominantly in east Hampshire in the South Downs National Park and then also in the Test Valley and New Forest National Park.

Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tours in East Hampshire and South Downs National Park

The majority of Hampshire’s vineyards are located in the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, due to warm weather, south facing vines and chalk terroir.  Not all vineyards offer tours however the award winning vineyards of Hambledon Vineyard and Hattingely Valley Vineyard offer vineyard tours from spring and stop in mid to late September prior to the harvest. Three Choirs Vineyard (formerly Wickham Vineyard) also offers a tutored wine and cheese tasting course.
