A group of Sussex wine producer have teamed together to form ‘Sussex Wineries’ with the aim of promoting regional Sussex Wine tourism.
The group comprises Albourne Estate, Bluebell Vineyard Estates, Bolney Wine Estate, Oxney Organic, Rathfinny Estate, Ridgeview, Stopham Vineyards and Wiston Estate.
Sam Linter, ceo of Bolney and Tamara Roberts, ceo of Ridgeview, launched the new initiative this week.
The Sussex Wine website (http://sussexwineries.co.uk) is now live with information about all of the wineries and opportunities for visitors locally, nationally and internationally.
The first collaborative event is Sussex Wineries Weekend celebrating ‘Sussex Day’ from the 15 to 17 June. Each winery will have a schedule of events throughout the weekend to encourage visitors to experience the diversity of what is on offer in Sussex as a wine region.
The group will work together to encourage visitors to discover their wines, tasting rooms, cafes, accommodation, tours and experiences with the aim of putting Sussex on the International Wine Tourism Map.
