Wine Week 2015: Wine Production in Kent

English Wine Week runs from Saturday 23rd May – Sunday 31st May 2015 and is a national campaign run by the English Wine Producers (EWP) whose aim is to raise the awareness of English wine, which is becoming increasingly well regarded.

This annual event is recognised across the country in a range of shops, independent merchants, pubs, bars etc. Events will be taking place and many vineyards will be opening their doors to the public for tours, tasting sessions and offers. Wine Week usually starts over the Spring Bank Holiday which traditionally marks the start of the tourist season and the beginning of the new growing season. Have a look on their website here for the list of the upcoming events.

We are lucky enough to have a great range of vineyards in the south east and those that are EWP members can be found here if you would like to plan a visit. Admission, tasting and tours can be free at some of them, while others require appointments, so do double check the websites before visiting each one.

If you fancy yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur, or maybe just want to learn a little more about the production process, why not experience the vineyards of Kent and try out a wine route through the Garden of England? The South East Vineyards Association has information on various events and a map of the different vineyards to visit. Geological conditions in Kent are similar to those in the Champagne region of France and so it is sparkling wines that have really taken off in recent years. Though the Romans had vineyards spread across Kent during the 3rd century, wine production phased out and it has only been relatively recently that vinification has taken off once again. Now is a great time to see what the county has to offer and to visit one of the many properties.

Sibton Park in Kent is located close to Folkestone and provides a great base from which to explore the surrounding vineyards. Find out how to stay here by following the link.
