Sunday 23 July, 12.00pm to 4.30pm at Hambledon Vineyard.
Vineyards of Hampshire (VoH) Fizz Fest is on for the ninth year! Join Hampshire’s ten premier vineyards on a summer’s day at England’s oldest commercial vineyard – Hambledon Vineyard.
Fizz Fest is the VoH flagship event and one not to be missed, with this commercially successful group of vineyards showing over twenty-five different premium sparkling and still wines. With glass of fizz in hand and something tasty to eat, attendees can learn more about, taste and purchase the incredible variety of Hampshire sparkling and still wines.
The Vineyards of Hampshire members range from small family owned to large vineyards with exceptional wine tourism venues. This year the association welcomes newest member, Quob Park Estate. All share one aim: to promote the quality of their Hampshire wines.
Ian Kellett, owner of Hambledon said: “We are delighted to be hosting Vineyards of Hampshire’s annual Fizz Fest here at Hambledon Vineyard, Hambledon. We look forward to seeing old friends, and welcoming all wine lovers, to taste a range of sparkling and still wines in our historic setting.”
Established in 1952, Hambledon is the UK’s oldest commercial vineyard. The current owners, Ian and Anna Kellett, bought the estate in the late 1990s and replanted with various clones of the classic Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. Today the estate has just over 200 acres under vine and concentrates on producing the very finest English Fizz.
Ticket bookings are open now for Fizz Fest admission and tasting, vineyard and winery mini-tours and exclusive masterclasses from Enjoy Discovering Wine, Tipple Talk and Riedel Glass.
Taste the latest vintages in the dedicated tasting tent, enjoy a chilled glass of sparkling in the Fizz Bar; purchase your favourite bubbles from the shop to enjoy at home; listen to the live music and absorb the atmosphere, whilst eating delicious food from Hampshire street food stalls (more than previous years), alternatively book a table at Hambledon’s new vineyard restaurant.
