Conveniently situated just 3 miles outside the historic City of Canterbury, Chartham Vineyard is very easy to get to (see How to find us).
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome; and if you have mobility restrictions, please contact us in advance so we can advise and make necessary arrangements.
Please see our Covid-19 safety measures.
Our grape harvest takes place towards the end of September-early October, each year.
If you would like to join our small team of volunteer grape pickers, please contact us.
Towards the end of October we lay on a post-harvest supper in our old Kent Barn at Burnt House Farm, to thank volunteers for their support.
Sparkling wines the equal of any champagne!
"The wines we tasted were super, especially the Pinot Noir and the pink sparkler which is 100% Pinot Noir. My wife thought the sparkling wine the equal of just about any champagne she has tasted and I couldn't disagree with her. I'm taking a few bottles to France with me on our next visit to show our French friends just how good English wine is."
We absolutely loved it
Terrific visit to your vineyard - we absolutely loved it and your family's passion to produce outstanding wines. We took a bottle of Blanc de Blancs to our friends for Sunday lunch and they loved it too. We opened the Rose de Noir today and thought it was even better than it tasted on Saturday. We will visit again soon."
"We had a great time but most importantly were deeply inspired by your story. The way your entire family changed their daily lives and started off Chartham Vineyard is extraordinary – all the best and thank you for the inspiration!"
"Thank you for showing us around - we had a wonderful visit. The vineyard is beautiful and the wines taste delicious .... so well done to you and your family."
