Vineyard Tours and wine tastings

Winemakers tour and tasting £20

This very popular tour has limited places and so must be booked in advance. It is led by winemaker John Hemmant and his team (subject to availability) who was one of the first to plant a vineyard in Norfolk and produce award winning wines back in the 1990s. With his background in chemistry, farming and the arts he will inspire you with stories of his experiences making wine in Norfolk and his knowledge from his studies and travels to wine regions abroad both in the New and Old worlds. This fantastic tour includes a taste of up to 5 delicious wines both still and sparkling from Chet Vineyard accompanied by tasty cheese and charcuterie.

The tour starts at the Chet tasting room and then quickly moves into the vineyard where you will walk amongst the vines for an interactive tour with John who encourages questions. After a short walk you visit the winery where John will explain the details of the wine making process and will demonstrate various steps in sparkling wine production. A real treat for those interested in wine, wine making and enjoying the results of this labour of love​
