Terlingham Vineyard


We are a boutique, family-run vineyard located right here in Hawkinge and are passionate about producing unique and delicious English wines with integrity. We grow six varieties of grape and are proud to make all our wines using grapes grown here at Terlingham.

Our ethos is, “nothing added, nothing taken away”.  Three years ago we embarked on the exciting journey of using exclusively natural farming techniques and producing natural wines under the knowledgeable and enthusiastic guidance of our winemaker. Our third year went exceptionally well, with a record yield, no disease and absolutely minimal harm caused to our vineyard and surrounding environment due to our natural farming methods.

 

A great deal of time, effort and love is poured into the cultivation of our vines which in turn make the beautiful grapes that go into our wines. We can pick and choose the exact grapes we harvest, when we harvest them, how we press them and exactly when the optimum time is to bottle our wine. Because of this, each harvest produces exciting and varied wines, each with a unique character and its own story. This is a true luxury for us and we believe it’s one of the reasons our wines are so special!

 

 

Opening Times

We love sharing our vineyard and wines and invite you to join us for a unique vineyard walk and tasting experience (by appointment only).

 

The day starts with an introduction to our traditional and natural wine making followed by a short walk through the vineyard where we give you a behind-the-scenes view of how we grow our scrumptious fruit using natural farming methods.

The tasting is held in our vineyard marque overlooking the English Channel and includes one of our delicious sparkling wines and two of our delightful still wines. We then complement the tasting with a selection of cheeses and artisan breads, finished off with a tea or coffee and a slice of our cake of the day.

Please visit our webpage for more information and to book or send us an email (terlingham.tastings@gmail.com). We look forward to sharing the vineyard with you!
