We are delighted to invite you to a tasting of five local winemakers on Sunday 01 September. Although winemaking in our corner of England is a long-established tradition, in recent years a new bunch of adventurous souls have set forth, secateurs in hand, to make their own mark on our local soils and reinvigorate the industry with high quality, beautifully presented produce. You can link to the producers as follows: Beacon Down, Fox & Fox, Hidden Spring, Off the Line, Tickerage.
As their vineyards have come into maturity and their fruit undergone the magic of fermentation, so has the Weald become a centre of excellence for English wine.
For us in the Weald, climate change presents an opportunity: come to support this exciting new facet of our local identity on 1 September by buying a ticket to the Vineyards of the Sussex Weald tasting at Cuculo. A fantastic Cuculo buffet will be served and the winemakers will be there to pour their wines for you and to answer questions about their vineyards and produce.
All the wines will be available to purchase from Cuculo, with generous discounts and cash-back against the ticket price for orders placed on the day.
Tickets are £20 and include all wine and food. Spaces are limited so booking is essential. Sessions are currently 13:30-16:00 and 16:30-19:00. As a self-service event, ticket-holders can come any time during the booked session. We recommend allowing 60 to 90 minutes to properly explore the wines and enjoy the food. Please note that times may be changed to accommodate a third session if necessary.
Tickets can be purchased from Cuculo (in-store, 01435 862596, firstname.lastname@example.org) and the participating wineries.
