English Wine Week


Until 6 June, visit Terlingham Vineyard for tours, tastings and sales daily 2pm-4pm


One of Kents newer vineyards is opening its doors during English Wine Week with vineyard tours, wine tastings and sales daily 2pm-4pm. Penny and Steve Riley planted Terlingham Vineyard in 2006. Nestling in the North Downs above the Channel Tunnel, the south-facing slopes look out over Folkestone and the English Channel with views of the Cinque Ports and France.


The chalky soil is ideal for the three classic Champagne grape varieties, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. These, together with Seyval Blanc, are used to make the sparkling wines. Bacchus, Schonberger and Madeleine Angevine are used for the whites and Rondo, Regent and Donfelder for the rose and red wines.


Open most days in summer 2-4pm, phone in advance to check or make a group booking.


Terlingham Manor Farm, Terlingham Lane, Hawkinge, Folkestone CT188 7AE.
