THESE EVENTS ARE CURRENTLY FULL. Please put your details on the Waiting List if you would like to be informed of any new spaces which become available.
We are very excited it is nearly time for harvest! We’d love to invite you to come and help with the grape picking again. Our picking days are always enthused with a wonderful sense of community and fun which we simply love.
We’ll start at 9am with coffees and teas, along with a training session from our team here at Wiston. Then we get picking! The morning will be fuelled with a cookie and cake break, and a hearty lunch will be provided as well. After lunch we do a bit more picking before cracking open a few bottles to toast the day and the vines. All pickers will be sent home with a bottle of Wiston sparkling wine and a voucher for two glasses on the house in Chalk*.
Please be aware: picking is a physical activity and requires a certain level of fitness and mobility. Sensible clothing and footwear is essential. Please also be aware, if the weather turns on us, the picking days may need to be cancelled – no one enjoys picking in the rain! Please do not sign up if you are not 100% certain you can join us on your selected date – the days are very popular, and for health and safety reasons we can only accommodate a certain number of pickers so we like all the places to be filled.
*These are available to those over 18 years of age only.
Really enjoyable wine tour and tasting as part of a few days in the area. Our guide was an excellent guide and really brought the whole process to life when explaining what Wiston do and how they produce their excellent wines. We sampled a number of different styles and got to understand what makes each unique. It also seems a real family affair and labour of love for all involved. I would highly recommend a visit if in the area, and tag on lunch/dinner in their delightful restaurant if possible. July 2022.
An absolutely fantastic tour! Our tour guide had so much passion and energy that really came through whilst talking to us all. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment! And the wines......... WOW..... We are officially blown away by them! July 2022.
Delicious lunch followed by fascinating tour of the winery and tasting. Our guide brought the whole story of Wiston alive and was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The tasting was the icing on the cake. A perfect way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon. July 2022.
