      English Wine Tour & Tasting

      Thirst Media presents tours of the Rothley Wine Estate 'Kingfisher's Pool' vineyard. Tour and tasting takes 90 minutes and you can choose to purchase a ticket for the 12pm, 1.30pm or 3pm slot. Tickets are fixed for the time and date booked.Your ticket includes a welcome drink, followed by a tour of the vineyard and winery. Enjoy the rows of vines flanked by native English roses, with the cheery sound of the Great Central Railway ringing out in the distance. Try and spot the namesake kingfishers down by the ancient pool. You will learn all about growing grapes and making wine in the heart of the English countryside, direct from the experts.After the tour, we will make ourselves comfortable in the conservatory for a guided tasting from local food and wine writer Laura Hadland of Thirst Media. Enjoy a selection of delicious Rothley Wine Estate products in an idyllic setting. New for 2019, enjoy our light-hearted aroma game - pitting your senses to the test and helping you to understand more about the different aromas that can come from grapes.Wine is available for purchase at a very special price if you wish to take a bottle or two home.Accompanied children are welcome to join the tour, but we're afraid tastings are strictly for over 18s, so you may wish to consider if little ones might get bored while you enjoy the tasting! There is plenty of outdoor space around the tasting room where you can supervise if you want to bring them a ball or other game to keep them occupied. Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome, but please let us know in advance so we can confine the vineyard hens to their run!Tours will go ahead in all weathers so please come equipped with umbrellas or suncream as appropriate! The vineyard is a rural space so please wear appropriate footwear. There is level wheelchair access to both the vineyard and tasting room, although some areas of the vineyard may be more difficult to negotiate by wheelchair users. The tour will be adapted to take this into account so that nobody misses out on any of the detail. Car parking is available on site in the side paddock, accessible from Westfield Lane. Please look out for roadside signage on the day.
