Sparkling South Downs - Hampshire Tours

South Downs National Park

The experience

A chauffeured tour of the sparkling wine vineyards and wineries of the South Downs National Park region. Meet the winemakers to see how the region is at the heart of the rapidly-growing production of sparkling wine from the chalk soils of England. Visiting at least three producers, find out about the importance of the chalk soil and the climate as you taste the wines and learn how the ‘Methode Traditionnelle’ is used to produce wines with the same grape varieties and attention to detail as Champagne.
