There’s something about spring in the UK that makes my heart happy. Living in the English countryside, seeing the roses bloom, the fields blossom, and hear the birds chirp, makes me crave picnics, hikes, and the odd relaxing stint of bird watching. But don’t you think these springtime musings would be sweeter with a taste of wine? Well, Laura of the wonderful blog the Travelling Stomach agreed and wanted to share the details of the Chapel Down Winery Tour in the Kent countryside.

All About the Chapel Down Winery Tour

English sparkling wine is now becoming commonplace on the shelves of the UK’s supermarkets competing with prosecco and champagne to be the best bottle of fizz. Chapel Down is one of the most well-known producers of English sparkling wine with their glasses of bubbly being served at various restaurants and some big ticket Summer events in London . You can take a day trip out of London to visit and take a Chapel Down winery tour in the beautiful Kent countryside, just outside of Tenterden.
