Sussex Winery & Vineyard

Explore the Wines of East Sussex

The East Sussex wine scene is renowned for its exceptional quality and the stunning natural beauty of its vineyards. Located in the heart of the English countryside, the region’s cool climate conditions, chalky soil, and ideal grape-growing conditions rival those of the famous Champagne region in France. This has made East Sussex a hotbed for premium English sparkling wines, recognized internationally for their elegance, complexity, and exquisite taste. Furthermore East Sussex is the centre of English premium still winemaking which benefits from the warmer micro climates and sandy clay soils found in the Rother Valley.

The area is also home to a thriving community of passionate winemakers, from family-run boutique vineyards like Oastbrook Estate to larger, well-established wineries. They offer a range of engaging experiences for visitors, from wine tastings and vineyard tours to special events and festivals that celebrate the local culture and the art of winemaking.
