The Chapel Down winery is located in the beautiful town of Tenterden, situated in the heart of the Kent countryside. We produce a complete range of English sparkling wines using the Traditional Method. The same method used in Champagne, but from fruit sourced from the South-East of England. From very modest beginnings two decades ago, we have become the UK’s #1 winery. Wine-lover demand for our sparkling wines has been constantly growing both at home and around the world.
