Like all of our tourism colleagues, as of 24th March 2020, due to COVID-19, Biddenden Vineyards, including our shop & vineyard walks, is closed for the foreseeable future. All private tours & open tours are currently suspended, if you have a booking please get in touch with us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. We continue to offer home delivery locally, throughout Kent and the rest of the UK via our online shop, so you can still enjoy a glass of Biddenden from the comfort of your own home or garden. Trade deliveries also continue. We hope that all our friends and customers stay well

Vinified from Bacchus grapes from our oldest vines, selected to express the characteristics of the Cotswold limestone soils of our Woodchester vineyards and exhibiting the unique varietal character specific to Woodchester, this wine is a ‘beauty’ (Victoria Moore)
