Wine making starts in the vineyard
Three Choirs Vineyards is one of England's leading single estate vineyards. One of Gloucestershire's main attractions, it offers a unique experience for both wine enthusiasts, and those just looking for a relaxing and beautiful environment in which to enjoy a great day out.
The Three Choirs Vineyards estate is one of the largest in England at 75 acres, and also one of the oldest - the first vines were planted in 1973, and the first vintage produced in 1976. Nestled in Newent, near Gloucester and deep in the Cotswolds, the rolling hills and valleys provide a unique microclimate which is perfect for growing grapes ideal for producing great english wine.
We offer tours and tastings, have a restaurant and two different accommodation options. Or just visit, relax, and take a wander through this glorious piece of rural England.
