Visit to Greyfriars Winery and Vineyard
July 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
For our first real-life get together in a long time, we have organised an exclusive, private visit to the award winning Greyfriars winery and vineyard, set just off the Hog’s Back between Farnham and Guildford. This will be an evening tour on Wednesday 14th July, starting at 6.30pm, which will allow us to benefit from the long summer evenings.
Now under the ownership of Mike and Hilary Wagstaff, the original vineyard was planted in 1989 and since taking over in 2010, they have expanded the area under vine to almost 50 acres on three sites focusing on producing stunning English Sparkling Wine. They have also built a brand new winery with state of the art winemaking equipment.
Our tour will be led by Aaron Gilling, an enthusiastic and key member of the team at Greyfriars. This will take place largely outdoors amongst their beautiful vines and in the disgorging room where the wines are finished before bottling.
Those attending will receive a souvenir glass. And you’ll get 10 per cent off wine purchases after the tour.
Liz and I went on this tour led by Aaron a couple of summers ago and we think it is the best English vineyard tour we’ve done.
