We are proud to offer wine lovers across the UK the unique opportunity to create and enjoy their own fine English wine using our own well-established variety of vines through our range of vine rental packages.
The gift of a lifetime, this exclusive offering allows our clients to try their hand at winemaking, getting involved as much, or as little as they desire. With leasing options from 3 to 50 vines available, Chet Valley leaseholders receive between 6 and 100 bottles of their own wine per year, whilst benefitting from exclusive vineyard access, a complimentary tour, invites to leaseholder events, and more.
From: £135.00 for 1 year
We are delighted to be able to offer three different vine leasing schemes from our Vineyard in South Norfolk. These can be either just still wines, white and rosé, or just sparkling wines or a combination of both – as below – depending on each year’s harvest. Each lease scheme can be undertaken over a one-year or three-year period. If ordering as a gift, please include the recipients details, including name, address, email and phone number, under Order Notes on the Checkout page.
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.
Our expansive land and wide range of well-established vines offer our leaseholders the opportunity to create numerous crates of high-quality wines year-on-year, delivering a truly personal experience from harvest to corking.
All Chet Valley leaseholders receive a beautifully designed, personalised certificate of ownership, featuring further details of the vineyard itself, their chosen vines alongside their precise location, and details of all leaseholder benefits.
Explore the Chet Valley Vineyard, check on the progress of your vines and why not bring a summer picnic too? Leaseholders are granted exclusive access to the vineyard and invited to bring a guest on a tour and wine tasting.
Leaseholders are invited to bring up to 4 guests on a complimentary wine tasting. You will have the opportunity to try three samples of any of the wines we produce at Chet Valley Vineyard.
As a Chet Valley leaseholder, you’re invited to take part in our annual harvest, meet the team and pick your own grapes. We also hold several other events throughout the year which leaseholders can attend for free, such as our pruning day, blending event, launch of new vintage, and sustainability day.
Whilst the wine yield from our vine rental packages already constitutes a significant discount, we’re delighted to offer all leaseholders an additional 10% off our full range of Chet Valley wines, both in our on-site shop, and online.
We understand the importance of making your wine truly yours. For an additional cost, our packaging specialists are pleased to offer a custom labelling service, allowing you to submit a design of your choice for printing and wrapping.
Browse Chet Valley Vineyard’s range of artisan sparkling and still English wines, handcrafted using distinct varieties of cool-climate grapes grown in our family-owned English vineyard here in South Norfolk.

From our award-winning Charmat-style ‘Skylark’ wines and flagship Méthode Champenoise, ‘Horatio’, to our varietal stills including our ‘Redwing’ rosé, there’s a bottle in our range to suit every palate.

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...)
