Head to a corner of Shropshire for a delightful day of touring and tasting at the family-run Kerry Vale Vineyard, and learn all about some excellent English wine before a sparkling afternoon tea made for sharing with this Vineyard Tour and Tasting with Sparkling Afternoon Tea for Two. Fittingly conceived back in 2010 over a glass or two of wine, the six acre Kerry Vale vineyard has since grown to include over 6,000 vines. Get down to the task of grape and site discovery, going all the way back to Roman times with a surprising amount of history! After that you'll learn the art of wine tasting sampling four tasty English wines, savouring the flavour profiles and comparing tasting notes across five simple steps with your tour companions. Before heading home you'll both get to enjoy an afternoon tea with scones, cakes, finger sandwiches and a glass of sparkling wine too, toasting to your newfound knowledge.
