Sussex April 2019
Friday 12th - Saturday 13th April 2019
Two days in Sussex for walking and vineyard visits - Rideview on Friday and Bolney on Saturday.
Ridgeview, Ditchling and Lewes
Friday 12th April 2019
I was originally planning on going to visit Rathfinny today, but when I called on the way down they told me they had sold out of sparkling wine, so I thought best to save it for May or later when they'd release the next vintage. So instead I visited Rideview today, then had lunch at the Bull Inn at Ditchling, then walked up Ditchling Beacon and along the ridge to Lewes. Spent the evening in Lewes, with dinner at the Lewes Arms.
Royal Oak at Wineham and Bolney Wine Estate
Saturday 13th April 2019
Spent the morning happily pottering around in Lewes, then got the train to Haywards Heath, and a taxi from there to the wonderful Royal Oak at Wineham, where as an added bonus they were having a classic car meetup. After a superbly rustic lunch I walked from there to the Bolney Wine Estate where I joined their afternoon tour and tasting. Then another taxi back to Haywards Heath, and home.
