Wine and Cheese Tasting Tour in Cheddar Valley

Escape into the beautiful Somerset countryside for a day of wine and cheese tasting, with a stop for lunch (included) at a fabulous local restaurant!

You'll meet your group in central Bristol where you'll hop aboard the tour minibus that will be your transport for the day.

The first stop is a natural, biodynamic vineyard with breathtaking views over Chew Valley Lake. You'll learn about the biodynamic approach to viticulture and the impact it has on both of flavour of the wine and the land and you'll taste two of these unique sparkling wines.

Then there will be a stop for lunch at the amazing The Pony Chew Valley, run by Josh Eggleton! You'll enjoy an exclusive lunch, with nibbles and a main dish, profiling the best local ingredients. You'll also get a special tour of the restaurant, garden and cookery school, from Josh himself (availability dependent)!

From here the group will head to the village of Cheddar, where you'll have time to explore this charming village before taking a tour of a dairy that produces the only cheddar cheese made in Cheddar and taste some of their wonderful cheeses.

Next, it's on to Sutton Ridge Vineyard, overlooking Blagdon Lake in the heart of the Yeo Valley. The family run vineyard is home to a variety of award-winning white, still rose and sparkling wines.
