Taste Events

Gin Tasting

Friday and Saturday sunset gin tasting in the sunflowers. Local gin distilleries will be sharing tasters with or without mixers – it’s up to you. They will also tell you about how they make their gins and what makes them special. At the end there is opportunity to stock up on your favourite bottles to take home.

Wine Tasting

A sophisticated Friday and Saturday evening in the sunflowers, where you can taste still and sparkling wines from local vineyards while sampling tasty cheeses and charcuterie. Speak to the producers and take your favourite bottles home.

Ale Trail

Not many people can organise a brewery tasting in a maize maze – but we can! Taste local ales, beers and maybe a cheeky cider in the maize maze ale trail on a Friday or Saturday evening, before listening to live bands and enjoying a BBQ or picnic in the sunflowers.

Patch Condition:

Good
