Vineyard Tours & Tastings

Enjoy a wonderful opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Court Garden Vineyard and Winery and find out how this family-run, single-estate vineyard has been growing grapes and producing wine since 2005.

We currently have two different guided tours, plus a self-guided tour and a tasting-only option. And we now offer a picnic lunch for after your morning tour, before your afternoon tour or even during a self-guided tour.

Gift Vouchers are also available.

NEW! Picnics

Book a lovely homemade picnic to enjoy after your morning tour or before your afternoon tour or tasting – available between 1:00 and 2:00pm on Saturdays.


Self-guided Tours and Sparkling Wine Tastings

For a relaxed visit to the vineyard book a self-guided tour, which entitles you to join one of our tastings (at 12.15pm and 4.15pm) or to have a half bottle of sparkling wine for two people to enjoy in the vineyard – or you can combine your tour with a picnic lunch. You can also book a Wine Tasting, without a tour.

Make a day of it

Ditchling is a great place to visit, spend all day or all week-end. Whether you want to walk on the Downs or visit our award winning Museum of Art + Craft. There is plenty to do, take advantage of our local knowledge and ask for help in planning your visit. Some great restaurants to recommend.

Getting here

Plenty of room to leave your car for you to explore before or after your tour. Come by train to Burgess Hill and take a 10 minute taxi ride to the vineyard. Take the train to Hassocks and walk about 40 minutes to the farm, but call up to learn about a short cut away from the main road.
