The Chapel Down Winery
Kent TN30 7NG
 
 
 
 
The slopes around Tenterden in the Weald of Kent in south-east England are home to one of  the country’s best known wineries.  Chapel Down produces award winning red, white and sparkling wines.
 
This area of England shares almost identical geology and soils to the Champagne region, with a chalk seam typified by the North and South Downs of Kent and Sussex, and excellent well drained soils in Essex and The Weald.  Chapel Down advise that they ensure that only the best fruit arrives at the winery in Tenterden to make the very best wine possible from the grapes.
 
A very pleasant few hours can be spent wandering around the vineyard, the Herb Garden, investigating the small Rural Museum and perhaps going on a Guided Tour with wine tasting.
