Plumpton College is Britain’s Centre of Excellence in Wine education, training and research, and is the only Higher Education Institution to offer undergraduate degrees in Wine Business and Production in English in Europe. Their courses include the best practice from both the ‘Old’ and the ‘New’ World, and they have excellent contacts within the English wine trade and with wine producers in Europe.

There is a vineyard from which students produce a range of still and sparkling wines. There is no cellar door as such, but wines are released for sale each year and can be purchased from the Wine Sales Manager by appointment or on the college’s main open day, which is usually held in May.
