“A lovely personal vineyard tour, beautiful village setting and delicious English fizz”
BOOK A VINEYARD TOUR AND TASTE OUR AWARD WINNING WINE
When you come to RAIMES you will be welcomed into our boutique vineyard where we are proud to have created a range of award winning English sparkling wines. Our vineyards are nestled within our beautiful 1800 acre traditional family farm near Alresford in Hampshire, home to Augusta and Robert who are the fifth generation of the family to farm here. Together we planted 10 acres to the classic champagne varieties in 2011 recognising the chalk terroir of the South Downs is perfect for growing high quality grapes.
Our vineyard tours usually run from May and September each year and include a trip from the wine barn out to the vineyards in our Landrover, taking in some aspects of the farm on the way. However, tours and tastings will be hosted a little differently at the moment. Please read the covid statement above. Tours will take place entirely in the vineyard for small groups, an our Raimes Landrover will be a simple mobile tasting station and shop. Due to the current regulations limiting group sizes the dates shown below are available to those who already hold tour vouchers and to those who wish to rearrange tours that were booked between May and July which had to be cancelled. All expiry dates on tour vouchers purchased for 2020 are now open ended so you can visit another summer instead. There will be no new tour dates for this summer and a new season of tour dates will resume next May (covid guidelines permitting).
We are able to offer you a vibrant cellar door experience instead, with wine tasting and wine by the glass and bottle at our cellar door in our charming courtyard with well spaced seating.
The cellar door will be open at the farmyard for drop in tastings and sales every Saturday afternoon 1pm-5pm. Further information can be found on our Cellar Door page.
