Private Vineyard Tours

Coates & Seely are not currently open to the public.
We have limited availability for bespoke private vineyard tours for groups of 10-12 people, by appointment only.

Private Tour of the Vineyards & Winery

Coates and Seely’s Private Vineyard Tours include a curated guide to the vineyards and winery, followed by tastings of the award winning English Sparkling wines accompanied by local food pairings.

Private Tour lunch on the vineyard

The vineyards, which are set in perfect English countryside, lie on either side of a V-shaped valley, in perfect tranquility.  They are a winemaker’s dream, where chalk soils and rugged flints retain the heat of the sun, warming the top soils, whilst in the late summer and early Autumn the enclosed valley helps trap the last of the season’s heat to ripen the grapes.

The vineyard tour is followed by a visit to the winery where the English Sparkling wines of the highest quality are produced using both traditional sparkling wine-making craftsmanship and the latest technology, notably our concrete fermentation eggs, the only ones in England.

English Sparkling Wine Tasting & Food Pairing

After the private tours of the Hampshire vineyard and winery guests are treated to tastings of Coates & Seely’s award winning English Sparkling Wines accompanied by local food pairings in the form of canapés.

Coates & Seely wine tasting

Food pairings with each of our wines are provided by way of canapés made from ingredients sourced – season permitting – from the surrounding land: venison from the vineyards, organic vegetables from the next door farm, or fish from the River Test that flows along the valley floor. This is followed by lunch or dinner, prepared by our in-house chefs, using locally sourced, seasonal produce accompanied by the perfect selection and vintage of wines.

Sparkling wine food pairing

Tastings and meals can be arranged outside, under Indian Mughal tents, or in the vineyard; or at the private residence of the owners. All food is prepared on-site by our own trained chefs.
