UK wine tasting

Our verdict:

English wine is alive, well and very much in the ascendancy according to discerning quaffers, both at home and abroad. In Gloucestershire you can not only visit one of the largest vineyards in the country, the 100 acre Three Choirs, but you can also sleep and dine on site - so there's no need to limit your testing of their fine pinot noirs and other produce.

Three Choirs Vineyards says

If you love good food, fine wines and beautiful scenery, then a visit to a vineyard may be just the thing for you – and it needn’t involve crossing the Channel.

Three Choirs Vineyards is one of England’s leading wine producers set in 100 acres of rolling Gloucestershire countryside. Our restaurant and bedrooms are set on a ridge overlooking the vineyards in an area famous for its beauty and tranquillity.

The two rosette restaurant serves fresh, local, seasonal produce wherever possible. Apart from our own wines, we also have a small guest wine list selected from other boutique producers from around the world. You won’t find these bottles on a supermarket shelf.

All our bedrooms are spacious and light, with ensuite bath and shower, flat screen TV and sitting are. They each have views overlooking the vine-clad valley and their own patio – a perfect location to relax and unwind in the evening sun with a glass of wine.

It goes without saying that wine tasting breaks are a speciality at Three Choirs; these are very informal as we like our guests to be able to savour the peace a vineyard offers. Included in the two-night break (from £230 pp) is a three-course dinner with coffee each evening, a bottle of our sparkling wine in your room on arrival, and a winery tour and wine tasting.
