Bluestone Vineyards is a family run enterprise, located in glorious Wiltshire countryside, fairly close to the ancient monument of Stonehenge. A new, on the block grape grower and artisanal wine producer, we specialise in the highest quality fruit for our sparkling wines and are proud to say that our first Bluestone Classic Cuvee has just been awarded a 2019 Decanter Bronze. 10 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are meticulously managed by brothers, Nathaniel and Toby, in fact the whole family gets involved, sharing the passion.
In addition to drinking in the view, Bluestone Vineyards offers individual and group visitors guided vineyard walks and wine tastings, starting from £15pp. Wine tour packages can be tailored to suit, for example a popular choice is to enjoy a delicious local food platter after the wine tasting, in the setting of the vineyard. An extended wine tasting can also be offered to incorporate a wider range of selected, quality English and local wines and guests have enjoyed an indulgent afternoon tea to finish. For a quirky conclusion, we can also provide an Alpaca walk through the woods and vineyard..
