Had a wonderful overnight stay to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. The accommodation, food, wine and... surroundings were all great but special mention must go to the staff on duty - they were all pleasant, cheerful, polite and attentive and their level of service was first-class. I would definitely recommend this venue, especially if you like wine with your peace and quiet.read more
Stayed in room no 6, 1st Aug 2022. We arrived at 1.30, but there was no provision for any food and had to drive to... Ledbury. Room was clean but dated, at £195/night I expected a better decor. Water pressure was very poor so shower was not enjoyable. Carpet could do with a good clean. Wine tasting was good. But it lacked the atmosphere. We were expecting something similar, but on a smaller scale to what we have experienced in France or Italy, Dinner was good but seems like we were sitting in a soul less place. Food and service, excellent. Place lacks atmosphere. Would I go again- Yes, but will not stay overnight. They do make some interesting Wines.read more
Spent a couple of nights at the vineyard in one of the lodges. Accommodation was spotless and set privately in the... grounds, amongst the vines.Wine tasting was super and Gill gave some excellent history of the vineyard to us.The tapas served in the restaurant is lovely and there are great views over the grounds. Special mention for Sharon who looked after us really well.The atmosphere is really relaxed. Can't fault it.read more

What a setting! Amazing! Enjoyed a fabulous tapas dinner, obviously the wine was excellent and staff very attentive,... efficient and friendly. Really enjoyed our evening followed by a stroll in the vineyard and a selfie! 👌👍🥂read more
Absolutely fantastic. We stayed for a night at Three Choirs in one of their lodges which was beautiful. Nice and... secluded with a massive bed and a bath. We both slept well and being woken up by bird song, pheasants and bunny rabbits darting around outside was idyllic.We also stayed for a tasting and a tour. The wine was great. I've never had English dessert wine before and it was delicious. Dinner was also superb. Nice tapas style dishes with plenty of vegetarian options.The staff were also lovely and incredibly friendly.You should book. You won't regret itread more
If you want to get away from it all (and who doesn't, with the Covid madness that is raging as I post this?) then... seriously consider coming here. We took a two-night stay, booking a lodge room. I can't speak for the other accommodation, obviously, but the quiet is incredible - occasional pheasant notwithstanding... the lodge rooms are about 500 yards from the main building, down a well-lit gravel road, in the centre of the vineyard. The room was immaculately clean, spacious, and the ensuite bathroom (big claw-foot bath and walk-in shower) is perfect. The underfloor heating is wonderful. Around you, pheasants, moorhens, rabbits and other birds are not terribly disturbed by your presence, as you walk around the vineyard. Sitting on the adirondack chairs outside (even in winter sunshine) the quiet is so relaxing. I imagine you might spend an awful lot of time out here in the summer months. The bed is extremely firm, be prepared for that, but I can't fault it, otherwise.The restaurant is pristine, tables well spaced, and the staff are very efficient. It serves Tapas, with a wide menu, and everything freshly cooked. Portion sizes are generous, the preparation is really good, and very tasty. Have a glass of their cuvee to start with, it's excellent, and you get a large glass, too! Didn't want Tapas two nights running, so we found a local pub for our second night. You order your breakfasts (and choose times) beforehand, and a big plus for me was that marmite was included, I didn't have to ask for it...The wine tour - included in the price - was very informative, and it must be great to be here when bottling is happening. Generous tasting of 5 wines gives you a great idea of what they produce, all of which are on sale in their shop.All in all, an excellent stay. If the world settles down, I'd love to do the this again in the summerread more
Oh my...what a little gem of a place! We had a drink out on the lawn...1st time we've cooled down in 2 weeks!Then went... inside for food. The menu is Tapas style. Plenty of choice for meat eaters, cheese and fish lovers and vegetarians as well. We had a bottle of the sparkling wine...fruity, crisp and delicious and we tried the 2 reds that the vineyard produce...Ravenhill coming out on top. It is a little pricey but it makes a great place as a treat or special occasion. Definitely worth it. The staff are lovely and we had the best waitress Sharon...she was friendly and chatty. Overall best night out in a long time! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Well done 👍😊read more
This was the best location I have ever been to in England. You would be mistaken for being in a vineyard in the South... of France. We stayed one night in the lodge cabin. Cosy, really clean, great facilities and amazing views. Breakfast was outstanding with many options. The wine tasting was fantastic. We learnt very quickly what wine to buy and what to avoid. Jill who did the wine tour was so amazing, very welcoming and answered all our questions and took the time to help us with whatever we needed. I would a million percent recommend this place. Hopefully one day they do wedding bookings as it would be an amazing location for it.read more
We fell in love with the vineyard setting when we visited Napa Valley a few years ago. We were so excited to find a... British vineyard that would allow us to relive the experience.I do agree that the accommodation could be upgraded, and could be more luxurious. However, at this price point, it would be impossible to not give 5 stars!We normally have to explain to every single member of staff about our diet requirements, and at every meal. At the Three Choirs - I only mentioned it at check in, and every meal was planned around our needs in advance. This made the experience a lot more relaxing. And the food was fantastic, they did a great job of catering for vegans at such short notice. The breakfast was amazing!read more
In 1973, we planted our first vines when local wine retailer Alan McKechnie started harvesting the vines on his small fruit farm. With a little help from the 1976 record summer temperatures and bumper harvest, his small fruit farm begun to expand. After nurturing it for 11 years, Alan sold up in 1984 due to poor health and the new owner was found.
Under new ownership, our vineyards grow to 75 acres
Under the ownership of John Oldacre the vineyards flourished and the name was changed from Fairfield Fruit Farms to Three Choirs Vineyards due largely to John’s connections to the Three Choirs Festival, England’s oldest choral festival.
John Oldacre died in 2001 and the company largely remains in the hands of his family.
We open our state-of-the-art winery and visitor center
In 1990, we opened a new state of the art winery, along with a visitor centre for the increasing number of visitors.
8 bedrooms follow so guests can enjoy English vineyard beauty
As the popularity of the restaurant increased, 8 bedrooms were added in 2000 so guests could enjoy the beauty of the vineyards.
We welcome a 40-acre Hampshire vineyard into the family
In 2014 Three Choirs became proud owners of their Wickham Vineyard, and started an extensive program of refurbishing the buildings and replanting areas of the vineyards. Situated in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, Three Choirs Hampshire spans an impressive 40 acres and has become a popular wedding location, with happy couples choosing to tie the knot nestled amongst the vines and gentle rolling hills of Wickham.
We launch new wine labels that capture the charm of our English heritage
In 2017, after a yearlong project of rebranding, Three Choirs are proud to announce new labels for their award-winning wines, produced in collaboration with Amphora Design, a specialist design consultancy working specifically with the wine trade. Local illustrator Jane Randfield was commissioned to produce the illustration for the labels and spent many days sketching and photographing the vineyard and it’s beautiful surrounding countryside.
“I wanted to show the undulating landscape, the backdrop of the Welsh Black Mountains and the Malvern Hills as well as the flora and fauna that thrives with the vines.” Jane explains.
With a constant focus on innovation and multiple award wins (including the first gold medal at Vinexpo in Bordeaux to be awarded to an English vineyard and a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence), Managing Director at Three Choirs, Thomas Shaw, says; “It is great to be packaging our wine with a label that truly reflects the provenance of our produce. English Wine deserves its own identity and Three Choirs is proud to be the first major English Vineyard to fully embrace our English Heritage on the bottle.”
