Welcome to the Dedham Vale Estate web site.
The Vineyard is set in 40 acres of glorious rolling English countryside, on the edge of the Stour Valley in the Dedham Vale. The vineyard produces six styles of award winning wines, and the Estate offers its proprietary cider, signature Fruit Liqueurs and much more.
All our wines are available from our online shop and the Tasting Barn and Vineyard Shop are open throughout the year. For opening times see our Visiting & Grand Tours page. Groups and parties are welcome and private tours and tastings can be booked in advance.
The recently refurbished Tasting Barn and produce showcase welcomes visitors to sample the wines and introduces the other products of the Estate. Formal wine tastings hosted by our winemakers are also available for individuals and groups.
It is an Estate with a difference, offering strolls through wildflower meadows, ancient hedgerows, lakes and woodland nurturing a great variety of wildlife – including kingfishers, doves and pheasants.
Located 3 miles north of historic Roman town of Colchester the vineyard is easily accessible from the A134 in Great Horkesley where it is clearly signed.
