A very special evening showcasing the best of Wiston...
Sundowner Vineyard Safari & Dinner at Chalk 16th September
September 16 @ 5:00 pm - 10:30 pm
For a few select evenings throughout the summer we will run our special ‘Sundower Vineyard Safari Tour and Tasting’, followed by a seasonal set menu dinner at Chalk.
We’ll meet at 5pm at North Farm and see the winery, the coquard press and wine production zones, then start our exploration of Wiston wines with a tasting of the non-vintage wines in the flint tasting room. Then we will hop into the winery trailer and head up and over the hills to our original vineyard. Here we will explore the secluded spot in the early evening and enjoy an alfresco tasting of our vintage cuvées – all made exclusively with grapes from this vineyard. Our cosy Wine Barn will be used if the weather is inclement.
We’ll then return as the sun dips down for a delicious dinner at Chalk. The menu for this dinner changes each week and is based on what our chefs source – with a major focus on local and seasonal sourcing. Here is an example of a set dinner menu:
Seasonal & Estate-foraged Appetisers | Bread & Cultured Butter | Asparagus, Pine Spruce Tip & Foraged Flowers | Mackerel Tartare, Apple & Yarrow, Roasted Lamb Rump | Parsnip & Hazelnut Parfait | Raw Milk Ice Cream & Sorrel
Ticket price includes: Tour & Tasting, Set Menu Food. Drinks at Chalk will be charged at the end of your meal. A discretionary service charge will be added to your restaurant bill.
Tickets may be refunded up to the 12th September but not after, unless the places are re-sold, when will arrange a refund.
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.
