Vineyard Picnics

Vineyard picnic lunch with Chet Valley Wine

chet valley vinyard picnic

Give your loved one a gift of an amazing immersive natural Norfolk experience to look forward to this summer. Or treat yourself and take time out from the everyday stresses of life.

Our Estate is an idyllic spot for a picnic and we’re only too happy to oblige. We’ll pack up a rustic picnic basket with local Norfolk produce including cheese, charcuterie, freshly baked bread, and other delicious nibbles, topped off with a perfectly chilled bottle of Chet Valley Wine. Then you just need to choose your spot – a cosy table in the winery or on our balcony overlooking the vines. If you’d rather go free range, you can bring a picnic rug and head out into the vineyard for lunch. Baskets are prepared for two people. Please note that there may be some variation from the image shown on our website and changes in the contents of the picnic due to seasonal alterations in availability of items.

£85 for two people this includes a picnic with menu as below plus a coupon to be redeemed against one bottle of sparkling or a bottle of still wine per picnic. Why not book a morning vineyard tour and tasting before your picnic lunch so you can chose which chilled wine to have to accompany your picnic feast among the vines?

Read before booking:

Tours are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays in season, from the beginning of April, until harvest time in October.

On Saturdays, tastings start at 11am or 3pm. If you have ordered a picnic, we recommend that you undertake the morning tasting before lunch, so as to gain the full benefit of both the wine and the cuisine:  the taste of the wine may be influenced by the flavours you experience at lunch. If you do book an afternoon tasting on a Saturday with your picnic, please aim to arrive from 1.30pm onwards.

John is happy to welcome hen parties to his winery by arrangement.

Dietary requirements can be catered for upon request, just let us know in the booking comments.

Locally Sourced Menu

Chet Valley’s luxury picnic menu features mainly locally sourced food options, including charcuterie, ham, cheese, freshly baked bread, hand made salads and strawberries and cream. A fish and also a vegetarian option is available on request.

Of course, our baskets wouldn’t be complete without a chilled bottle of our own artisan award-winning wine.

Enjoy Award-Winning Wines

Enjoy our range of artisan wines from the vineyard in which they’re grown. Our picnic for two vouchers includes an exclusive coupon to be redeemed against any of our bottles, from aromatic whites to fruit-forward rosés.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy a glass of our award winning Skylark from a cosy spot in the winery, or a glass of Redwing under our Walnut tree, we’re happy to accommodate you.

Experience the Vineyard and Winery

Picnicking amongst the vines gives our wine lovers the chance to experience and enjoy the beautiful vineyard, and the land surrounding it, from a new perspective.

Our picnic guests have the option to roam free throughout the vineyard when searching for a spot, offering a truly unique experience.
