Chartham Vineyard

Summary

Chartham Vineyard is one of East Kent's newest vineyards situated at Burnt House Farm in Chartham close to the historic City of Canterbury in Kent. It is owned by Dr Roz Waller and her husband Richard Goodenough and managed by their son, Andy Goodenough.

Variety of events and experiences on offer - vineyard tours, tutored wine tasting and more!

We are keen to share our enthusiasm for our vineyard and wines.  We welcome pre-booked group tours to explore our main and demonstration vineyards and taste our wines.

We have a Wine Shop in our ancient farmyard, open on Saturdays from 10.30am to 5.30pm. Next to this is our Tasting Room/Gallery where we hold art exhibitions, demonstrations and tutorials - see our Art page.

Chartham Vineyard is ideally placed for anyone visiting Kent’s historic centre. Located just 5 miles outside Canterbury, we offer ample free parking in our farmyard plus very easy connections by train, bus, footpath and cycle path to the City’s three World Heritage Sites.
