Yes, dogs are more than welcome, although please be aware that it’s a working vineyard and there may be tractors moving around the site. We also ask that you pick up after your dogs.
How can we help?
Yes, children are welcome at the vineyard and may accompany you on tour – however we do like to remind you that this is a 2-hour educational wine tour, so depending on the extent of your child’s burgeoning love for wine, you may wish to do the Self-Guided Tour instead.
Buggies can be brought along, the vineyard ground drains well and is usually fairly solid in the spring & summer.
Absolutely, if you have any allergies or dietary requirements please just let us know in the booking comments and the kitchen will accommodate for them.
We have a converted barn which has windbreak sides and infrared heaters where you may sit if the weather disappoints. If you have booked in for a picnic – we will ensure that you have the option of sitting undercover.
Absolutely, that’s what we’re here for! Our Cellar Door staff are always here during our opening hours to guide you through the range and provide you with some delicious Dorset Sparkling Wine to home with you!
The beauty of the self-guided tour is that you can spend as long or as short a time as you wish! We will pour you your flight of 3 sparkling wines which you can take to a picnic bench or wander around the vineyard with for as long as you please.
We would recommend around 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours for the full experience though.
Unfortunately we do not allow overnight camping at the vineyard.
Our guided tours run daily at 2:30pm and are limited to 18 people per tour – these must be booked via the website – see here for more info.
Our Self-Guided Tours are designed for those of you who don’t want to be fixed to a strict schedule. We will have space for 20 people daily between 10:30am and 3pm – see here to book in for your chosen date.
We do ask that if you are coming for either our Two Course Lunches or Picnics, you pre-book this specific offer to assist with kitchen ordering.
We strongly recommend booking to avoid disappointment, you may pop by for a drink but at peak lunch times we cannot always guarantee a table.
The vineyard is usually solid underfoot as it has good drainage and there are no steps on any part of the tour. Do be aware that our Barn has woodchip on the ground.
We do not allow table decorations; our venue is predominantly outdoors – with covered areas – and we do not want to risk decorations blowing away into the environment around us.
