Flowering is underway in the vineyard across all varieties & looking very clean with the dry conditions we have at the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Early signs indicate that there is a good crop out there & we now need a good run of warm weather through flowering & into setting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #englishvineyard #winemaking #BiddendenVineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #heartofthegarden #englishwine #vineflower #inthevineyard #producedinkent #kentwine #winegardenofengland #vineyard #winewednesday #adayinmyboots #vineyardwalk #agriculture #viticulture #ortega #seasons #summer #june #visitkent

Perfect date night or giggle with friends. Booking next Wednesday and throughout the summer 🍾

We are very lucky to be visited by a whole plethora of gorgeous creatures here at the vineyard (not least our customers! 😉) and this rather lovely Little Owl was spotted by our guest John Phillips, who saw him enjoying a moment of reflection amongst the vines - before he was rather rudely disturbed by a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker who came calling also!

#thetickledtrout is a great place in the countryside for the kids to run wild while adults enjoy good food and local wine 🍾 just look at Alyna's face 😅 she has already run a mile and after taking few seconds to swallow her meal whole, she rushed Sasha to the playground, then collected all kids from other tables, made a gang and oh magic ✨D and I managed to dine a little kids free 💚 #priceless #hushheath #kentwine #whenyouhavekids #goodplacefordinner🍴

Honoured to have been chosen to supply the reception bubbles for a truly beautiful occasion in Shipbourne recently catered by #michelleroux & #albertroux 🍾

Lovely photo of the Vineyard taken over the weekend, coming on well out there! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @rconker with @get_repost ・・・ A lovely birthday weekend. Sunday spent at Biddenden Vineyard enjoying the 12th annual Food and Drink Day. All produced in Kent. Lots of stalls selling scrummy cheeses, chutneys, jams, honey, cider, gin and of course wine! A wander around the vineyard too. Perfect day and came home with lots of goodies including herbs, chilli jam, honey, coffee and a couple of bottles of very nice reds! 😄 And we bumped into friends too! #biddenden #biddendenvineyard #kentfoodandrinkday #Kent #kentproduce #vineyardvines #producedinkent #wine #kentwine #gardenofengland #englishwine #loveKent

So it looks as though we’ve escaped the frost risks, yay!! Of course plenty of other things which could still scupper our 2018 harvest, but we are starting to get a little bit excited after a stroll through the estate. The hard work continues amongst the vines, as the plants have been bud rubbed and the canopy thinned, and these beauties can now be seen in their masses. In a very much shortened explanation, what look like the beginnings of bunches of grapes here are in fact the inflorescence - pollination (did you know vines were self pollinating rather than requiring a bee to help?!) will see fertilisation and “Fruit set” will come next with the berries as the result!! Come and join our excitement and learn more (as well as drink a decent amount of recent vintages!!) at one of our infamous Wine Wednesdays. Spaces available from the 27th of June and throughout the summer. A perfect date night or giggle with friends! 🍇

Happy weekend!! We’re closed tomorrow for a beautiful wedding, but look forward to welcoming you to the courtyard and pond garden on Sunday!! 🍾

Back in the UK briefly... took the rents to the vineyard in Kent that I DJ’d at a few weeks back for lunch. Amazing setting, open air roof, stonebaked pizza, and local gins and homegrown wine! 😎🇬🇧 #jackUK #londonboyinkent #vineyard #shorehamkent #annogin #countryside #pizza #kentwine

National Rosé Day on Saturday!! We’ll be closed fo a beautiful wedding though, so do come and grab a bottle or two tomorrow in preparation!! Santé!! Our lovely Nicole is wearing this gorgeous T by @fwp_by_rae - we are big fans of her wine related apparel here at the vineyard!

Last week we had a visit from the lovely Rachel of @grapesandcloth - she’d heard about us from a fellow insta fan and so headed over to see what we had to offer. It’s always so wonderful for us to see the reaction of new guests to the courtyard and you can even read about her visit too as it turns out she writes a blog (and a good one at that!) On her visit Rachel was wearing a rather gorgeous T Shirt from @fwp_by_rae who owns the market in delicious wine related slogan apparel!!

Bacchus 2016 is now available from the Vineyard shop & online for home delivery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Made from the Bacchus grape, one of England’s most interesting varieties for still wines, this is a dry white wine with a crisp finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bacchus grapes have a strong & distinctive aromatic flavour with characteristics which develop well in the bottle over time. An ideal alternative to a Sauvignon Blanc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bacchus #englishwine #biddendenvineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #biddendenwine #producedinkent #localwine #kentwine #whitewine #winemaking #familybusiness #newrelease #newvintage #godofwine #englishbacchus #tastingnotes #winelover #wineoftheday #winegardenofengland #heartofthegarden

It’s the final day of #EnglishWineWeek & it only seems right to finish on a sweet wine. Biddenden Schönburger 2016 is a light blush fruity sweet wine made with late harvest grapes which have been left on the vine to develop higher natural sugars. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Flavours of honey, lychee and elderflower adorn this lusciously sweet, rich white wine. Ideally served lightly chilled as an aperitif. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #EnglishWineWeek #sweetwine #biddendenvineyards ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #schönburger #englishwine #kentwine #winegardenofengland #producedinkent #estategrown #familybusiness #winemaking #tastingnotes #winegardenofengland #heartofthegarden #carnations #inmyvase #dessertwine #aperitif #biddenden #kent #sunday #biddendenwine
