Quality English Wines
The West Fisher Winery is one of the smallest commercial wineries in the UK producing between 7,500 to 10,000 bottles annually.
Our maximum tank capacity at present is around 14,500 bottles per year and growing.
As a wine producer but not a grower we buy grapes from UK vineyards to produce our wide range of wines. We currently purchase from vineyards in Surrey, East & West Sussex, Hampshire, Kent & Wiltshire.
Not being tied to one vineyard for our grapes means we are able to offer uniquely blended wines with a wide range of phenolics & terroir.
We currently produce Red, White & Rose' still wines as well as English Sparkling and our legendary Kent Ciders.
Our cider is Kent grown and Kent made, Ringden Farm produce the lovely apple juice for us and we do the rest. You can buy our cider at farmers markets and shows in 500ml bottles, 3 bottle gift packs or in 2 pint take away cartons.
We are reintroducing our apple wine this year, a blend of Chardonnay grape juice and Kent apples produce this refreshing and crisp wine. Available in 375ml and 750ml screwcap bottles.
SEVA Wine Route Map
The South East Vineyard Association have worked hard to produce a local wine route map, released in time for summer lat year, available from SEVA and from us at local shows, markets and of course the winery directly, you can also view and download a copy here if you prefer.
The Winery & Wine Tasting Events
We first took over the Old Stables at Skid Hill Farm in April 2012. Since then we have been working hard to renovate a near derelict building into a working winery and increase our production from 2,000 bottles annually to our target of 20,000. We are close to our initial target of 10,000 and have increased our sparkling wine production to reflect the increase in interest and sales in that area.
Wine tastings at The Old Stables offers an interesting and stimulating evening out, most people have a basic understanding of traditional wine making and as we are a small producer everything is very much hands on. We can welcome groups of 4 people up to a maximum of 45 and you can choose to have a simple wine tasting, a tasting with cheese & biscuits or a wine tasting with a finger buffet. Price for a wine tasting only is £9 per head and for a tasting with cheese & biscuits £11.50 or £14 per head with a buffet. We require a minimum of 10 people for the buffet. We are fully licensed and of course you are welcome to purchase wine on your visit.
