A FAMILY-RUN ENGLISH WINE ESTATE, FOR ALL SEASONS.

Set within the rolling hills of Kent, Hush Heath Estate began with a simple love of wine, a handful of vineyards and the will to push boundaries. With the huge success of our first wine, Balfour Brut Rosé, we turned our passion into a family business.

Today, we are proud to offer an exceptional guest experience across 400 acres of pristine Kent countryside. From expert-led winery tours and guided wine tastings, to stunning vineyard walks and nature trails within ancient oak woodland. Open all year, we warmly invite you on a seasonal discovery of English wine and nature like no other.

Full Estate Tour and Tasting

A lovely afternoon spent here, our guide (Barry) was extremely knowledgeable and most of all friendly and chatty, really adds value to the experience. Took away all that pretentious feel of a vineyard. Enjoyed the tasting of the wines and the platter, my only complaint was that on arrival nobody stated that the platter I pre-ordered did not come with the wine I tasted on the tour, otherwise I would have had this beforehand. Overall a great day, and the weather certainly helped!

Full Estate Tour and Tasting

Quite expensive for the tour including the £5.00 tasting. Having said that the tour was very interesting and our guide Anne-Marie was knowledgeable, informative , professional and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We were unable to visit the winery due to harvesting so we watched a video which was great. The very generous voucher to compensate for this was appreciated and quickly spent in the shop!! Our lunch platters afterwards were of the same high quality as the wine and fizz!! Our only niggling issue was the presence of dogs in the eating area, one of which was wandering around freely. Not really our thing. Overall a fabulous day and experience.

We were welcomed by some very friendly staff and offered complimentary wine on arrival. The premises were beautifully designed, tastefully decorated and we were fortunate enough to be able to sit on the terrace as it was a beautiful summers evening. I can honestly say that the food was utterly amazing! Beautifully presented, very tasty and the waiting staff were informative, friendly and attentive!

Real difficulties ordering taxis in such an isolated area but beautiful surroundings and committed quality winery with a huge selection of different wines and excellent Apple juice and cider from their own orchards.

Our vineyard experience was led by Jackie and Esther, both very friendly and made the tour so interesting, and were very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. The wine tasting was great, and our lunch platter was delicious. Altogether an amazing day! Len and Jennie Saunders. X x

PRIVATE Cellar Door Masterclass £25

A brilliant tasting, expertly hosted by friendly Keli. It was the rainiest of days, I got the time wrong and got lost but it was an excellent visit and I learned so much about your amazing wines. Bought a few bottles too. Can't wait to come back and hopefully it'll be sunny next time - I need to wander around the vines. Thanks guys!

Balfour Wine and Dine Experience

What a awesome day! Our host Barry, was fantastic and hospitable - unpretentious but knowledgable. The 3 course meal was great too, with wine tasting and wine pairing, there was good amount of wine! The estate is beautiful and you really get the feel of family owned business passionate about wine, food and conservation. Definitely recommend the food and wine experience.

A wonderful day, staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the whole day was pitched at the right level for the visitors. Very interesting insight into so many things other than wine-making, including the conservation aspects of the estate. Wine was excellent, as was the food. Highly recommend a visit and I would certainly like to go back and repeat the experience. A huge thank you to all the staff.

Winemakers' Dinner - £75.00 per person - 6.30pm - 10.30pm

A Black Tie dinner was a great idea. It was so lovely to get dressed up for a quality evening. My wife and I attended as a couple, and were placed on a table with two other couples. The company was great, and we loved it. The food was a little uneven. For example, my wife and I both had soup for the first course and it was outstanding, but our mains were disappointing. Way too much salt had been applied, to the point where the dish was actually unpleasant. Then, the dessert course was extremely good but the cheese course was unnecessarily frugal, to the point that everybody on the table hesitated to take some from the (single) plate for fear of depriving the rest of the table. Overall, the evening was a really nice experience. Our table was fun, all of the staff/servers were impeccable and we would definitely attend another such event. The food aspect could usefully use some attention, though.
