Nestled in the sheltered, sun-soaked fields of Bergh Apton, South Norfolk, Chet Valley Vineyard’s single estate vineyard spans over 10 hectares of family-owned land, producing a sensitively maintained range of high-quality grapes, from champagne varieties to germanic crosses. Benefitting from the English vineyard’s rich terroir, alongside the skills of passionate winemaker John Hemmant, our carefully curated final bottles form a collection of award-winning artisan English wines year-on-year, from fruit-forward rosés to aromatic whites.
We strongly believe that the experience of guests at the vineyard is equally important to producing high-quality wines, meaning the vineyard offers a number of unique experiences including virtual and on-site tours and tastings, vine rental, venue hire, and events.
We look forward to welcoming you, but before that, if you have questions or queries regarding any of our offerings, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Lovely afternoon touring and learning about the vineyards and tasting the wines with locally produced nibbles. John is an excellent host and passes on technical information easily. A delightful way to celebrate a 60th birthday with a family group and even better being able to cycle through beautiful lanes in the sun to get there .

We had a wonderful day at Chet Valley! We hired the venue for a family party and enjoyed food and wine on the balcony overlooking the beautiful vineyard scenery. We particularly enjoyed the Horatio Rose Brut which was very refreshing on a hot summers day. We had an excellent tour of the vineyard with the owner, John who was very knowledgeable about not only the vines and the wine but also the local area and all things nature related. He was also very good with the children in our party. I’d highly recommend Chet Valley Wine and also Chet Valley as a venue to hire.

Don't be deceived by the sunny photo below! A friend and I joined a Chet Valley vineyard tour earlier this year, and despite pandemic restrictions and a torrential downpour that even included hail at one point, John managed to pull off an engaging and fun event. It would appear nothing can dampen his enthusiasm. 😉 Chet Valley has a surprisingly wide range of wines of good quality. So if you are in or around Norfolk - or want an excuse to be - I highly recommend paying them a visit. (Warning: you will probably want to purchase a few bottles too...)
