Woodchester Valley Vineyard
Woodchester Valley is an award winning, boutique vineyard and winery located in the Cotswolds, a 12 minute drive from Burleigh Court Hotel. Specialising in producing still and sparkling, white, red and rosé wines from vines planted in the limestone soils of the Cotswolds. Woodchester Valley has spectacular Classic still wine and Sparkling wine tours, which are available throughout the year.
First established in 2007 by the Shiner family, the 55 acres of vineyards are located across three sister sites at Woodchester, Stonehouse and Amberley. The predominantly South facing slopes are uniquely located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, where vineyards have been recorded since 1086. Great care is taken both in the vineyard and the winery to produce the finest wines each year. The grapes are handpicked and lightly pressed with a slow, cool fermentation to preserve the aromatics and fruit characteristics of our cool climate still wines. The Cotswold sparkling wines are made in the traditional method with the secondary fermentation in bottle.
