The Donkey @ The Cellar Door

A highlight of 2023 is sure to be the reopening of our Cellar Door.

‘Cellar door’ is the name typically given to the part of a winery where wine can be sampled and purchased. We’ve taken this one step further, teaming up with signature caterers, The Donkey, to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Our new Cellar Door is all set to provide exceptional food and refreshments, great atmosphere, and of course, even greater wine! Combine your visit with a winery and vineyard tour, and you’ve got a great day out!

The Donkey @ The Cellar Door will be open from April to September, so plenty of time to find a space for it in your social calendar.

Come and raise a glass with us, we’d love to see you there!

"Made at contract winery Itasca by Ben Smith, who was responsible for making my highest scoring English wine of all time (2018 Oxney Chardonnay), I have no problem declaring that this is the UK’s finest Pinot Blanc to date.

The fruit comes from the Missing Gate Vineyard in Essex, where it was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed into third fill Burgundy barrels. I was lucky enough to taste a bottle late last year, and it is as lively and energetic as any white wine you will taste.

A low sulphur regime and minimal fining have left the beautiful fruit to romance your senses. This is a truly brilliant wine with sensational depth, complexity and length. It is not slippery and smooth like an Alsatian PB, but grainy, combative and textural like an epic Chablis. It is nothing short of stunning, and it is certainly the epitome of brave winemaking."
