Looking for Hampshire food and wine events perfect for all food and wine lovers ? Hambledon Vineyard have a Club Epicure Pop Up Summer Club coming up on the 9th of June with tickets available at £70 per person.
Epicure: A person who cultivates a refined taste, especially in food and wine; connoisseur. Two of the things we love the most here at Hambledon.
“Club Epicure’s Alex is a self-taught home cook with a passion for sourcing the best local ingredients and doing things the hard way. His passion for cooking has been growing steadily for a number of years. In 2017 he was lucky enough to appear on BBC One’s MasterChef before making it to the quarter finals of the culinary competition. Since then, Alex has gone on to run pop up restaurants with fellow competitor Faye Dodwell, both in Winchester and in Faye’s home town of Hexham. He has also been a guest chef at a Magazine Street Kitchen supper club in Mumbai.
Each dish he makes is carefully curated using locally sourced ingredients to create a refreshing seasonal menu brimming with flavours, textures, and presented on a plate fit for any Instagrammer, and this supper club is no exception. Hambledon Vineyard is delighted to be working with Club Epicure to create a memorable evening in a truly unique setting. All three of Hambledon’s award-winning sparkling wines are paired with this inspired three course menu, enabling you to enjoy the very best of British.”

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.
