E-Bike Vineyard Tour, Appledore, Kent TN26

 

We meet at Appledore railway station (Postcode TN26 2DG) where you will be met by our associate tour leader from the E-Bike hire company (Rye Bay E-Bikes). 

Ideas on what to expect on our “Appledore” E-Bike vineyard tour:

The first 15 minutes are reserved for firm instructions on E-Bike capabilities. If you have not ridden an E-Bike before then – for safety’s sake we suggest you take a test ride, before leaving.

In considering the English weather pattern and the English vine growing season, the best months to arrange this sort of E-Bike vineyard tour adventure is to choose a day from late April to late September. 

Subject to whatever details our associate tour leader arranges, our English E-Bike single-day vineyard tours are likely to start at 10:00 and finish at 17:00 hours; and the respective seven-hour day includes two English wine producer visits and lunch in a vineyard setting.

When everyone is ready, we cycle to our first “English wine producer” venue about 20 minutes E-Biking distance away. We join their “Vineyard Tour” starting at 11:00 hours.

This tour lasts for two hours and includes a walk amongst the vines, and a winery tour, with a tutored wine tasting afterwards, in their tasting room.
Whilst this well-respected English wine producer is better known for their Sparkling Wines, they also make Still Wines.

As carrying away any number of bottles you decide to buy from a wine producer or winery is unsafe or prohibitive on an E-Bike, we would encourage you to place an order for home delivery!

After the comprehensive vineyard tour finishes, we follow an easy twenty-five-minute picturesque cycle route to the second wine producer venue, just under four miles away near Woodchurch.

Upon arrival we will briefly meet Graham Barbour (owner) and then tuck into a delightful charcuterie lunch with a refreshing glass of wine, overlooking his 12-acre vineyards.  Later, Graham will present a tutored talk about his still and sparkling wines, during which you will be offered a tasting of them all.

Thereafter, we take a gentle circuitous sightseeing E-Bike route back to our meeting point at Appledore railway station.  Our picturesque E-Biking journey back to Appledore station follows a southerly route via Shirley Moor and then skirts around Appledore and on south to see the marsh isolated 13th Century St. Thomas Becket Church near Fairfield. The last bit of our circuitous cycle route goes northeast to Snargate and left onto the B2080 to Appledore station (in all from Woodchurch around 10 miles E-Biking distance).
