S IM PSONS WINE E S TAT E , K E NT Set in a glorious position on the sunny, sheltered slopes of the North Downs of Kent, the Estate’s vineyards thrive on the chalky soils there, so revered for the production of grapes chosen for the world’s most exquisite sparkling and still wines. Tours and a host of special experiences are offered and are definitely worth enjoying – here, you’re in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there’s plenty to see and do close by, too. A typical visit will begin with a walking tour of The Roman Road vineyard, to learn how the vines are planted, trained, nurtured and harvested, before returning to the state-of-the-art winery, where you will be guided through the entire Traditional Method winemaking process. Of course, no visit would be complete without a very special tasting of their excellent wines in the elegant Glass House Tasting Room. There’s even a ‘Fruit Chute’ helter-skelter guests love. Coming home with a case or two is a must, and all of their wines are so good it’s actually hard to choose – but how about their highly acclaimed Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2016, created from estate-grown chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Delicious. www.simpsonswine.com PAGE 13
