Squerryes

If wine is involved, we're there! If it's the best of English wine, from right here in Kent, we're there with (sparkling) bells on! Grab your girlfriends, pop down for a tour, tasting or even enjoy tapas on their new terrace...

Weekend Escapes
Squerryes is a 2,500 wine estate located just outside Westerham and has been run by the Warde family for just over 300 years. Above the front door to their home sits the family motto: ‘Licet Esse Beatis’, which means ‘permitted to be joyful’. They say they’re in the business of creating joy, from bottling their vintage sparkling wine to the event and dining spaces they have created across the estate to enable more moments of joy.
Squerryes vintage sparkling wine is made from their own fruit (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes) grown high on the North Downs. They take a minimum of 4 years to make each bottle, respecting the ‘Traditional Method’, the same method used by the Champagne houses, to make their award-winning bottles of Squerryes. In 2020 they won their fifth gold medal in the World Championships of Champagne and Sparkling Wine, the first English wine brand to win 5 golds across 5 consecutive vintages.
Plus they have a brasserie-style restaurant (the Bottle Store), sun-filled terrace and private garden serving delicious food using seasonal ingredients foraged from the estate and some wonderful artisan producers from the Garden of England. Select cuts of prime meat, fresh vegetables and seafood from their coastal waters are at the heart of the menu, created by estate chef,  Alexander Baillieu, a chef of 20 years, having learnt his skills under the guidance of the Roux brothers. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday.
During the spring and summer months, you can have a picnic in the Rosé vineyard, with hampers freshly prepared by the estate kitchen filled with delights using seasonal ingredients. They also run tours of the vineyard and tastings of their award-winning Squerryes between Friday to Sunday.
They also have a number of spaces for private hire for meetings and celebrations for up to 200 people across the Estate.
