Biddenden Vineyard is Kent's oldest commercial vineyard, having been established by the Barnes family in 1969. The vineyards are set in 22 acres on a gentle south facing slope in a shallow sheltered valley, 1.2 miles from the lovely Wealden village of Biddenden. Ten varieties of grapes are grown to produce White, Red, Rosé and Quality Sparkling wines, all of which are pressed and bottled on site. The vineyard also produces the famous Biddenden Cider, along with farm pressed juices.
Visitors to the vineyard are able to take a walk through the vines on a choice of marked routes and take a look around the winery. There is also the chance to taste the award winning wines, ciders and juices in the vineyard shop, which is fully stocked with a wide variety of locally produced jams, chutneys, honey, beers and more.
