Wine tour packages
Situated on the rolling chalk plains of Wiltshire, sharing the same bedrock as nearby Stonehenge, Bluestone Vineyards offer individual and group visitors guided vineyard walks and wine tastings.
Enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of the vineyard with resident expert Nat McConnell. Learn how great grapes are grown and wonderful wine is made. This is followed by wine tasting in the vineyard setting, where visitors can try for themselves the Bluestone Classic Cuvee alongside a selection of locally produced nibbles.
For wine connoisseurs an extended wine tasting session can take place incorporating a wider range of selected quality English and local wines. Why not finish with an indulgent afternoon tea or local food platter?
