Wine Garden of England information about the Summer Festival

Come and meet the top Kent wine producers at the iconic Squerryes Court in Westerham.

Taste the wines from Biddenden, Balfour, Chapel Down, Gusbourne, Simpsons, Squerryes and Westwell. Meet the people behind these award winning wines, learn more about the industry in a series of workshops, and sample delicious food from local producers too.

Aleesha Hansel (Love Your Weekend, ITV), the exciting up and coming wine broadcaster, will be with us for the day, pairing local food and wine and answering your questions in a special workshop that can be booked when you’re buying your tickets.

We are excited to be welcoming local food producers such as Cheesemakers of Canterbury and North Charcuterie - perfect with a glass of English Sparkling Wine!

Each of our producers will be offering plenty of wine to taste, from award winning sparkling wine that rivals any grand marque Champagne, to light crisp Rosés and Whites, and even some fruity reds. Squerryes Chef will be cooking up a delicious Paella if you’re peckish, and if you’d prefer one of their sumptuous picnics, you can order one in advance to pick up when you arrive.

Squerryes Court used to be open to the public, and has been the location for a few period dramas over the years. It’s now home to Henry Warde and his young family, the eighth generation of Wardes to have lived in the house since it was bought by Patience Warde back in the time of the great plague of London. This is a great opportunity to spend time in the private gardens of this incredible piece of history.

The Wine Garden of England is a collaboration of 8 Kent Wineries who work together to promote tourism to the region.
