Rathfinny Wine Estate


Rathfinny Wine Estate is a family-owned vineyard, established in 2010 by Mark and Sarah Driver and dedicated to producing some of the world’s finest traditional method sparkling wines from a perfect site in Sussex. Located on a wonderful south-facing slope in England’s South Downs, the climate, chalk soil and aspect make it the perfect site. 

Throughout the year we offer tours and tastings and exclusive events such as guest chef takeovers and our popular ‘Dine in the Vines’ evening dinner parties. We also have a Rathfinny trail so you can explore the Vineyard and wildlife.

We welcome visitors all year round to our Flint Barns bed and breakfast which offers boutique, en-suite accommodation, and serves delicious meals and popular Sunday lunches with a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere. Visitors can also dine in our Tasting Room which has been awarded a Plate Michelin and serves the best, seasonal British produce.

Visit our website to discover the Rathfinny story and to book a stay or dinner reservation. We offer exciting seasonal packages so you can make the most of your visit.
