What you'll do

I’ll come and collect you from your local accommodation and we’ll head over to my family’s winery, Calais Estate, where we will have a look behind the scenes with a private tour of the vineyard and winery including the barrel room before heading inside to make your own sparkling wine. You will get hands on to disgorge and dosage your own bottles to take home. Then we’ll do a wine tasting and you will get to explore the gorgeous Come What May homewares and gift shop and will collect a special take home hamper of local products. After all this, I’ll drop you back to your accomodation again with a quick tour of some of the local highlights on the way. Please note if you would like to stay at the Estate for a picnic lunch this can also be organised for an additional cost.
