Kent’s original vineyard, established by the Barnes family in 1969.
Eleven varieties of grapes are grown across 23 acres, producing award-winning white, red, rosé and sparkling English wines. Ortega, Biddenden’s signature wine, accounts for approximately half of the vineyards.
Approximately 80,000 bottles of wine are produced each year and all the grapes are estate grown, with all vine work & picking carried out by hand to ensure that the very best quality grapes are selected to produce Biddenden’s wines. Pressing, fermentation and bottling is also carried out on site, and the majority of wines are sold directly from the cellar door.For up to date information on opening times and visiting Biddenden Vineyards, please see our website.
