Dedham Vale Vineyard is set in 40 acres of vines, woods and pasture on the edge of the Dedham Vale AONB.  

 Sample the wines and wander through the vines as you enjoy this glorious part of North Essex.  The vineyard is on the Essex Way with lovely walks through the surrounding countryside and quiet country lanes and villages of Constable Country.

Vineyard Tours & Tastings

Grand Tours - £25pp

A guided tour and wine tasting followed by a delicious lunch in the Tasting Barn.  Led by a member of the DV team, Grand Tours are a fantastic way to discover the wine story from the vine to the glass. 

Your wine guide will take you through the vines and winery as you discover the process of turning grapes on the vine to wine in the glass.  Following the tour, sit down and enjoy a tutored tasting of wines from our vineyard before a delicious lunch.

Grand Tours are available on selected days from March to November and must be booked in advance.  Tours are now fully booked for 2018.

Group Tours & Parties
We welcome groups to the vineyard to discover the English Wine Story.  For more information, please contact the vineyard directly:

The vineyard tour and trail follow natural grass paths which are fully accessible in good weather.  Disabled toilet facilities and baby changing is available in the Tasting Barn which is fully accessible at all times of the year.
