September is one of the most beautiful times in Wiston’s vineyard as it marks the beginning of harvest, with the grapes at their optimal ripeness. To share it with you, Wiston are welcoming visitors for a Vineyard Open Day as part of Steyning Food & Drink Festival.
On arrival you will be greeted by Kirsty Goring whose family owns the estate. She will introduce you to Wiston and will give a complimentary tutored tasting of two of our award-winning English Sparkling Wines. Our Vineyard Manager, James McLean, has then curated a self-guided tour around our vineyard. As you stroll through the vines at your leisure, you will receive a unique insight into their growing year and why the Wiston vineyard is so suited for making award-winning wines.
Booking is essential and as per the current government guidance, we can welcome up to two households totalling 6 adults per booking slot, so that you will be able to enjoy your visit with your friends and family. Each booking slot will be private to your group so that Wiston can safely stagger arrivals throughout the day.
If it is a lovely sunny day (which we hope it will be!) you are extremely welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy at the foot of the vines after your tour. All that we ask is that you take all rubbish with you to dispose of at home. Wiston Estate is also within the South Downs National Park and there are many beautiful country walks. Kirsty would be very happy to advise you of routes if you would like to explore.
