3rd October to 4th October at Hever Castle and Gardens
Hever Castle has teamed up with Squerryes Vineyard to host ‘A Celebration of Kentish Wines Dine & Stay’ on Thursday 3rd October 2019. This is a prestigious event which offers a unique experience to combine Hever Castle’s 13th century history, now a five-star establishment, with an opportunity to learn about and taste wines from some of the worlds most exciting winemakers.
Arrive in the afternoon, settle into the Astor Wing and explore the Hever Castle Estate. In the early evening, guests will gather in the Music Room ahead of a private guided tour of the Castle, after which Squerryes will host a drinks reception in the Castle. A six-course dinner will follow, each course paired with a wine from the Wine Garden of England: Chapel Down, Hush Heath, Simpsons, Gusbourne and Biddenden. After dinner, there will be an opportunity to purchase a mixed Kentish Wines case containing the wines from the evening and enjoy an evening bar or retire to bed.
The next morning, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in the Tudor Suite Dining Room before heading off to the nearby Squerryes Estate for a tour of the vineyard and a tutored tasting ‘A Flight of Squerryes’. If the weather is favourable, there may also be an opportunity to assist with the harvesting of the grapes!
Tickets cost £250 per person.
