It's 2021, spring has sprung (ish), and with the ongoing vaccine rollout, we are all hoping for some light at the end of the Covid tunnel. That said, despite the limited opening of certain businesses in the UK today, we have a little way to go.
Following the difficult decision made last year to remain closed throughout the 2020 season, we decided to move forward on plans to build a brand new Tasting Barn, Winery and holiday accommodation on site (visualisation pictured above). These construction projects are well underway, however, unfortunately, we now expect them to impact much of the 2021 season.
As many will appreciate, the world isn't quite as predictable as it might have been. That said, we hope to have the build finished towards the end of the summer, and aim to run tours in our brand new facilities towards the end of the season (September/October).
What does this mean for tours and vouchers?
All Dedham Vale Vineyard vouchers that expired after April 1st 2020 will be automatically extended to maintain the validity period that they would have had on that date up to 1 year. This includes any vouchers purchased after that date or in the future.
e.g. if your voucher expired on May 1st 2020, it will be valid for 1 month from when we reopen, and the June 1st 2020 expiry would be 2 months from when we open etc.
Tour dates will be made available on our website when we have greater confidence in project completion timing. (We will send another update email to subscribers when they go live)
If you have a "Buy a Gift" or other 3rd party vouchers, please contact your voucher provider directly for an extension or a transfer to an alternative activity.
If you have any concerns or further queries about this please contact us via phone - or refer to our Frequently Asked Questions below
THANK YOU SO MUCH
for your patience.
It has been a really tricky time for so many over the last year or so and we cannot wait to welcome you to our new facilities.
