of Kent & Sussex
Vine + Country are curators of bespoke Kent & Sussex Wine and Food tours where the extra mile is our first mile. Led by passionate local guides brimming with enthusiasm and local knowledge our Wine Experiences are a celebration of the wonderful world of English wine and the people behind it.

A short hop from the capital and a stones throw from the continent we’re perfectly placed to share our love and pride for the world class local wines, heritage and abundant local gastronomy of our little corner of England. Sit back and relax as we pick you up from ‘your front door’ or convenient train station and transport you through the beautiful hearts of Kent & Sussex wine country on an adventure that will educate your mind and delight your senses!
More Than Just a Wine Tour
Tour, Eat and Stay with us
Wine is so much more than a drink. It is the fruit of a years hard work, a lot of know how, values and history. Our experiences will lead you through the complexity of the English wine world. We will take you on a journey of the natural cycle of the grape and show you how to pair wines with foods from the surrounding area.
All of our tours are individually crafted experiences, privately hosted and privately catered from glorious platters of local fruits, cheeses and meats to high-end tasting menus. And to make your time with us even more relaxing ask us to arrange your accommodation for you.
Grab your favourite people, sit back and relax as we transport you to the serenity of the stunning Kent & Sussex vineyards. Discover local secrets, hidden gems and savour the best wines and produce in the UK!
The Vine + Country Menu
Is there any better alchemy than the one between wine and cuisine? No wine tour would be complete without an artfully prepared lunch to celebrate in-season, local ingredients. Our tour lunches guarantee to leave even the most veteran foodies amongst you with a smile.
We believe that for the best flavours it’s important to follow the seasons to consistently load your table with the best of whats fresh, heaving English cheese boards, home cured charcuterie, local seafood, artisanal breads and stunning “instagramable” cakes!
Furthermore if you’re seeking private catering for an event and like what we’re putting down then give us a shout and check out the Menu page for more.
The Stunning Gardens of England
Take a trip into our captivating and historical English landscapes. From whale-backed chalk ridges to rolling verdant hills, ancient woodlands and valleys rich in wildlife. Share a glass in good company whilst gazing out across a landscape where our ancient past is still just skin deep.
Taste a legacy as old as the first Roman explorers who landed here bringing vines to our shores, walk in the footsteps, glass in hand, of the invading Normans who landed here and who later established vineyards throughout their newly conquered British estates.
It doesn’t get more quintessentially English than this.
