Sparkling festive fun at Bolney Wine Estate

Bolney Estate's blanc de blancs

Dive into the festive spirit with some exciting events at Bolney Wine Estate this Christmas, writes Nick Mosley.

Bolney Wine Estate is one of the oldest commercial vineyards in the UK and has recently undergone a stunning transformation and expansion with the launch of new visitor spaces – including a brand new café and vineyard shop – so December is the perfect time to visit and experience some of Sussex’s finest English wines and hospitality.

The Estate team has curated a range of events from a wine fayre and live music, to sparkling wine afternoon tea and late night shopping. Tickets are required for the afternoon tea on Friday 8th December and Festive Fridays throughout December, but late night shopping on Thursday 14th and Thursday 21st December is drop in and free to attend.

You’ll be able to immerse yourself in an evening of festivities as we head into the most magical time of the year, and discover Bolney’s Christmas range whilst indulging in mulled wine, Christmas cocktails, mince pies and other festive favourites.

James Davis Master of Wine and general manager at the award-winning Estate explained more about the events.

“Bolney is such a beautiful setting at this time of year, and we’re thrilled to be hosting a selection of festive events in the run up to Christmas. Guests can join us at the Estate for everything from late night shopping with mulled wine to live music nights and our first Christmas Wine Fayre”.

“Our vineyard shop will also be open during the events with our brilliant team on hand to make suggestions for perfect wine matches for your Christmas dinner and gifts for friends and family. We’re also proud to be hosting a number of other Sussex businesses during the festive season including The Sussex Bee, Curing Rebels Charcuterie and Spirit of the Downs”.
