Ideas on what to expect on our “Wateringbury Wednesday” e-bike vineyard tour:

Ebike in the vineyard

E-bike in the vineyard 

After about 15 minutes E-Bike instruction & test riding (if necessary), we head off on a circuitous route west towards our first venue at Yotes Court (near West Peckham where part of a recent Television series “The Larkins” was filmed) and later to our afternoon venue in Mereworth. In all, our day’s e-biking route covers less than 15 miles.

In due consideration of the English weather pattern and the English vine growing season, we have planned twenty-three guided e-bike vineyard tour dates on our Wateringbury route during our 2023 season, running weekly every Wednesday from 19 April through to 20 September.

All our UK single-day vineyard tours normally start at 10:00 and finish at 17:00 hours; the respective seven-hour day includes two wine producer visits and lunch in a vineyard setting. 

 

The E-Bike proved to be an absolute luxury, being carried
by the technologically advanced E-Bike around the vineyards and over the entire route, leaving plenty of time for
wine-tasting and the expert knowledge of our guide.


Our visit at Yotes Court, includes a vineyard tour, followed by lunch and wine tasting of their sparkling wine and still wines – whose brand is closely-associated with horseracing.

Later we cycle a short distance to visit Mereworth Wines, established in 2015 by a Cornishman, where you will experience an hour’s winery tour with a sparkling wine tasting and other products afterwards.

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

Our return to Wateringbury station follows an easterly route via Nettlestead.

What are the highlights?

  • From Wateringbury rail station, we cycle 5 miles (approx. 40 minutes) to Yotes Court.
