Perhaps surprising for some, English wines are gaining quite a reputation internationally as being amongst some of the best in the world. The Heart of Kent is home to several small Kent vineyards and wineries producing award-winning white, red and sparkling wines, which visitors can try for themselves at free wine tastings. Chapel Down Winery uses grapes grown in two of the largest vineyards in Kent at Lamberhurst and Tenterden in its award winning sparkling wines - good enough to rival genuine champagne and please the most discerning wine drinker. The Winery, shop and Bistro at both vineyards make for a great day out. Biddenden Vineyard - one of the oldest commercial vineyards in Kent - grows and produces both wine and apple cider at its on site winery. Just a short distance away, Bacchus, Reichensteiner and Schoenburger grapes are grown alongside Dornfelder and Rondo in the 25-acres of vineyard at Sandhurst.

  • Steven Kent Sauvignon Blanc Lola Ghielmetti Vineyard Livermore Valley 2013

  • Steven Kent Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose and aromatically driven by cinnamon dusted vanilla aromas and a huge pipe tobacco, briary top note. Very low on the palate and a bit chewy with fruit extract, this is a smooth, plush wine filled with blueberry pie filling and candied black cherry flavors all layered over sweet toasty oaky spice. In tis style its quite well done... Read More

  • Chapel Down Rosé Blend English Rose 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I said divine apricot colour but reviewer above more accurate with 'delicate smoked salmon pink'. The nose is ever-so-slightly earthy on its strawberries, In the mouth those strawberries are mouthwateringly acidic in a highly well-balanced package. Read More
