We are delighted to launch our new Tenterden Wine Trail to celebrate and share some of our wonderful producers of wines, ciders and beers. The English wine industry is enjoying a renaissance, thanks in no small part to Kent's top class wine producers.
The county's south-facing slopes, chalk soils and increasingly warm climate provide the ideal conditions for grape growing and are in fact similar to the Champagne region of France.
No surprise then that many leading wine makers are located in the Tenterden area - and it's not just wine. Conditions in this area of the Garden of England are also ideal for growing hops, apples and pears to make delicious beers, ciders and juices.
Our abundance of vineyards and other local produce, teamed with appealing places to stay, eat, drink and visit, make Tenterden the ideal choice for a day trip or a short break.
Every vineyard and brewery is unique and has something different to explore, so we've put together this guide to help you plan your visit. We hope you'll have fun - Cheers!
