Augusta and Robert are the fifth generation of the family to farm the fields now flourishing with vines and home to Raimes English Sparkling wines.

About the farm

Together with land farmed on the historic Tichborne Estate, the farm stretches from the protected and ecologically diverse water meadows of the River Itchen, to the grassy rolling hills of the South Downs near Winchester. The busy working farm grows wheat, barley and oilseed rape. The grassland is home to a herd of traditionally horned Herefordshire cattle.

Why not visit this vineyard with your own friends or family and without worrying about who does the driving?

Hampshire Tours offer private tours for up to 6 people with collection points in Hampshire (within 30 miles of Petersfield). Tours available Monday to Saturday.

PRO TIP

Pre-order vintages before release to be sure of receiving wine as quantities are limited from this new, but already respected producer.
