  • The original five acre vineyard was planted on Kentish Sand and clay in 1973, making it one of the oldest surviving commercial vineyards in Britain. 2002 saw the start of a major expansion programme with an additional 15 acres planted to date, and a further 2 acres still to be planted. This expansion will take Bookers into the top 10 vineyards in the UK in terms of size. To cope with the growth in size, a brand new state-of-the-art winery was built in 2005 and officially opened by The Hon Margaret Becket MP in January 2006. Bookers wines have won many awards over the years and we anticipate that our new facilities will allow us to be even more successful and produce even better wines in the future. To find us, from the A23, turn west on the A272 towards Cowfield, after a large double bend, Foxhole lane is on the right just after a small garage. The vineyard is about half a mile up on the left, the second of two adjoining entrances. While in Bolney, the picturesque church of St Mary Magdelene is worth a visit, with parts dating to 1100 AD, and featuring a medieval lychgate.
