Organic wine tasting on our farm, September

Teaming up with great organic wine suppliers Vintage Roots and Arkells, we’re offering 20 customers the chance to taste up to 10 wines on September 13 out on the farm. Given reasonable weather that afternoon—planning to meet at 4.30—we’ll choose two great locations where we can taste the wine, sample our new charcuterie, and some lovely local cheeses. This is to help us select our winter wine list.

It’s ticket only—£28 per person for wine tasting or £50 per person for wine tasting and a two course supper back at the pub afterwards.  If you want to make a night of it, book one of our wonderful bedrooms, which we’re offering at 10% off for the night. Tell us, email us, phone us. We expect demand to be strong…if the weather’s poor, we’ll still find sheltered space.
