Your Guide: Sue
Sue has been walking for as long as she can remember, before that she thinks she was crawling. She also likes to get around by bicycle, kayak, scooter, horse, boat or just about anything with wheels, legs, paddles or a sail. Being outdoors and moving are just about her two favourite things to do. She's also pretty keen on the Iron Age, but not on ironing.

Is there any better combination than summer hiking and a little wine tasting? Captivate your senses with this wonderfully relaxing outing in the North Wessex Downs!

In the afternoon we head to an award-winning vineyard for a small and friendly group wine-tasting. Embark on an exploration among acres of grapevines in one of the warmest and driest areas of the UK, surrounded by the undulating chalkland of the North Wessex Downs, indulging in a glass or two!
Showcasing the best of English white, rose, red and sparkling wines – this is an enchanting opportunity to appreciate a stunning plantation and discover wines crafted using traditional techniques.
You’ll get to sample the scrumptious wines on offer and learn about the methods of wine production. Discover the different varieties of grape that contribute to the exhilarating colours, flavours and intoxicating smells of English wine at its very best.
