Fresh from their success at the Sommelier Wine Awards – winning Silver for its 2011 Sparkling Rosé – and Decanter World Wine Awards too, Greyfriars is offering free tours and tastes of its news wine. So, as well as a chance to try the medal-winners, you'll be among the first to sample the 2011 Blanc de Blanc and the 2012 Rosé Reserve.

Since taking over at Greyfriars Vineyard in 2010, Hilary and Mike Wagstaff have expanded the number of vines thirtyfold, taking the total to 45,000 over 30 acres. With David Line as vineyard manager – a former rock musician and Plumpton College graduate, David had been with the winery’s previous owners – the plans are ambitious and the welcome is friendly.  

Greyfriars bottlesGates are open from 10am to 5pm, with tours and tasting available throughout the day.

This is your chance to see an emerging player in its early days.
