Vineyard Tours

Grand Tours

Every Friday and Saturday, and Wednesdays too from the end of May, we offer a Grand Tour of Furleigh Estate's vineyard and winery. This starts with a glass of Furleigh Estate sparkling wine on arrival. You will then be escorted by Rebecca Hansford, the owner of Furleigh Estate, or Nick Beecheno, our experienced tour guide, on a tour of the vineyard and winery. Along the way you will hear how the vineyard came into being in 2005 and the mostly highs but some lows that have occurred since then. The tour finishes back in the tasting room with a tutored tasting of at least four of the Furleigh Estate award winning still and sparkling wines accompanied by local cheeses and charcuterie. Tours start at 11am, unless otherwise stated, last around 2 hours and cost £25 per person. If you do not wish to book directly, you can buy a Grand Tour Voucher, which also makes a memorable gift. Go to Grand Tour and Tasting Voucher.

Classic Tours

Our Classic Tour starts with a walk to the vineyard. In the vineyard you will hear how we look after the vines throughout the year, what pests and diseases we have to contend with and what happens at harvest time. After this, in the winery, our guide will explain the wine-making process. Here we make some of the country's best red, white and pink still and sparkling wines. Please note that access to the winery may be restricted at times during the harvest for safety reasons.

Classic Tours run at 2.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, with Wednesdays added in the summer.  They last around 90 minutes and cost £12.50 per person. Booking is advisable, particularly during the summer months and as we get close to harvest. If you do not wish to book directly, you can buy a Vineyard Tour Voucher, which also makes a great present. Go to Classic Vineyard Tour and Tasting Voucher.
