Admission fees


Barnsole is a boutique Kent vineyard and winery run by a handful of passionate wine makers who strive to produce premium quality Kentish sparkling wines.

One-hour tours with the winemaker can be booked via email or by telephone but visitors are welcome to drop in for a free tasting without appointment. 

The tours include a sample of sparkling wine upon arrival, a look at the vineyard (and a walk amongst the vines, weather permitting), a look inside the winery to see how the wines are made, concluding with a tasting of a flight of wines.

Tours are £20 per adult. Please note that while Barnsole endeavours not to mix groups, you may be invited to join another group at your discretion.

Bespoke group tours can be arranged - please call to discuss.

Opening times

  • May to September - daily 10am to 5pm
  • October to April - every day except Wednesdays 11am to 4pm

If the weather is poor, please ring ahead. Evening tastings and tours by appointment only.

English sparkling wine, still red and white wines are sold exclusively from the winery door.
