The fruit is ready to pick, crush and press, now you can join the team that see it go from vine to wine. This is what it's all about! Come and witness firsthand as we create this year's vintage. Try some English wine and listen while our winemaker explains the entire process during a winemaking demonstration. Arrive early and we'll serve you breakfast in the vineyard, consisting of bacon rolls, pastries and tea & coffee, before you set to work among the vines, picking grapes to be made into wine. When the wine is made, you will receive four bottles of the wine you helped to make and 10% off any additional bottles you wosh to purchase.
Please note, the majority of our wine is made at a winery, using grapes from our vineyard, that is not on the vineyard. However a small amount, 20-40 litres, will be pressed on site as part of our demonstration.

Your sumptuous two-course lunch with a glass of Rampant Horse* is served at Sissinghurst's award-winning village pub, The Milk House.
