Informative. Delicious. Friendly, Historic. Welcoming. Beautiful ...

Apart from chatting with us in the Vineyard, many visitors take the time to write and email us with their compliments - as well as leaving reviews on Google and Trip Advisor.
"As a consumer visitor experience, Chartham provides something a little different from the slick, brand-focussed approach of the big players. There’s a real eye for detail in what has been set up …. Chartham is one of the hidden gems in an already hugely exciting region for English wine, and long may that continue!""

John Mobbs Great British Wine, 2019

We now have expanded our range of wines and have several Great British Wine and international Decanter Wine Awards under our belt – but our visitor experience has stayed true its relaxed, family friendly roots.

What visitors say

Very Accommodating
“Loved the family history of the winery and everyone we met was so friendly, warm and funny (Andy, Richard & Roz). Very accommodating to our hen party grouping.”

Absolutely Recommend
“A wonderful tour and tasting. Andy took us round the vineyard and was so informative and happy to answer all our group’s questions. Then Richard ran the tasting in the beautiful barn, great to hear how passionate they all are. Loved every minute of our trip, a group of nine with a pregnant lady too, so accommodating to us. Would absolutely recommend. Thank you!

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 will visit again soon
"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."

Wonderful visit
