Forget the horrible weather and look ahead to food and wine events in Hampshire especially on June the 24th. Book to enjoy Crab and Cuvée in the glorious summer sunshine at Hambledon Vineyard !
“Something new for this year, we are pairing with Sallys Fish Camp ahead of Lymington Seafood Festival. Fizz and seafood are a perfect combo and we think we have found a perfect match in Sallys Brand and ours. A delicious and exciting day which will teach you about Wines and Crabs. We then put your knowledge to the test with a crab picnic style lunch with half a bottle of Classic Cuvee to enjoy with your crab picnic overlooking the Vineyard.
The Day itself:
We start the morning off at Midday – Prepare to jump right in to a fully laid out workshop. We start with the crab cracking. Sally will explain parts of the crab, where it came from, how to cook it, kill it humanely etc, this usually flags up loads of questions of course fuelled on a Glass of Hambledon.
Once we’ve pulled, cracked, twisted and picked… don’t panic we will feed you soon, it doesn’t take long to then actually dress the crab and its ready for consuming!
We then move on to the wine tasting, The Hambledon team will guide you through a talk of the vineyard and then as we are at a vineyard it seems silly not to try our wines.
Head outside for a picnic style lunch overlooking the vineyard where you can eat your crab served on fresh sourdough washed down with a glass or two of Hambledon.”

Food And Wine Events In Hampshire – About Hambledon Vineyard :
A Labour of Love
We currently have three main vineyards covering 20 hectares on the slopes of Windmill Down (named after an ancient windmill) around the house. Each vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – the three grape varieties most commonly used in the production of Champagne.
Home Vineyard is planted on the steep Southeast-facing slope immediately beneath Mill Down House at between 50 and 100m above sea level. Our larger Windmill Down Vineyard spreads across the Southeast-facing slopes to the west of the house and winery. The third vineyard to the east of the house is, unsurprisingly, called East Vineyard!
Making wine is a labour of love and our vineyard team works hard all year round, in all weathers. Our 100,000 vines must be pruned by hand – like pruning the roses in your garden – and the grapes are handpicked in September and October. Our presses and winery are located on site, which means we can minimize the time between picking and pressing – a crucial factor to ensure the quality of the wine.
