World Class Sparkling Wine
Penshurst Place is the ancestral residence of the Sidney family, located in the heart of Kent's Wine industry. The Baron's Hall is a beautifully preserved ancient Great Hall. The State Dining Room, Tapestry Room, Long Gallery and the Nether Gallery display a vast collection of paintings, armoury and artefacts. The gardens at Penshurst have records dating back to 1346 and are considered one of the most beautiful gardens in England. The 48 acres are divided by miles of yew hedges to create a series of outside rooms, all with different themes.
Stop at the local pub for an early lunch, before heading into wine country.
Drive the rolling hills, through Ashdown Forrest and South Downs National Park (inspiration of Winnie the Pooh) passing Pooh Corner, small villages and hamlets.
Visit Ridgeview; the story began in 1995 when Mike and Chris Roberts had a dream to create world-class sparkling wine. Twenty years later, production has increased to more than a quarter of a million bottles, sold across the world. The business has been at the forefront of the English wine revolution of English wine production. Enjoy drinking the wine and tour of the estate.
Finish the day with a short stop at Bolney for cheese and wine tasting before your return to South Lodge Hotel or London. Time permitting stop at Cider farm for further tasting, or take away purchases.
