Sip in Style with Sussex Wines this June

Celebrate Sussex Day with Sussex Wineries, a collaboration of inspiring wine estates responsible for producing some of the most innovative and diverse wine styles in the UK today. To showcase our award-winning wines and beautiful Sussex countryside, our wine estates will throw open their doors for a weekend of tours, tastings, wine dinners, music, events and food pairings.

The inaugural Sussex Wineries weekend will take place over 15th – 17th June 2018 and is a celebration of Sussex wines, wineries, vineyards and local Sussex produce. Sussex is regarded as the heartland of UK wine production, and the Sussex Weekend provides a unique opportunity to meet winemakers, tour wineries and sample current and newly released wines.
