Downsview is a family-run vineyard in the heart of the Weald of Sussex and Kent countryside collaborating with local producers and chefs to create a unique destination for food and wine. From fine-dining amongst the vines, to sunny afternoon picnics and Friday night pizza and fizz

Husband and wife team, Toby and Katy Spiers, took over Downsview, a two-acre vineyard, with gentle South-facing slopesin July 2020

Since taking on the vineyard, the couple have transformed the space and the wine offering to make Downsview a eating and drinking destination.

A tasting room above the winery has a bar and log burner, perfect for cosy evenings whilst rescued miniature ponies, peacocks and farmyard animals occupy the neighbouring paddock.

Most recently, an outdoor kitchen and seating area has been added to winery where wines are made by Toby, who opens the winery every weekend for tastings, vineyard tours and cellar door sales.

Downsview has now launched a new summer dining programme. In collaboration with local chef, Aaron Fitzgerald and regular supper clubs will be held among the vines, featuring seasonal produce and wines from the vineyard and across the world to match and each supper club offers a distinctive dining experience.

For a more casual evening, Downsview is open every Friday afternoon and evening for pizza cooked al fresco
from the vineyard’s pizza oven and served with a selection of home-produced wines and ciders, with locally
brewed beer.

Those just looking to drop in and try some wine can choose from charcuterie boards and
tasting flights.

Downsview grows six grape varietes – the whites are Bacchus, Chardonnay and Ortega and the reds are Pinot
Noir, Pinot Meunier and Dornfelder. All the wines are produced in the onsite winery, with the grapes ofen
being crushed directly in the vineyard to ensure incredible freshness and vibrancy.

Located in High Weald AONB on the edge of the stunningly beautiful Ashdown Forest, Downsview
is stone’s throw from Crowborough, in between Tunbridge Wells, East Grinstead and Lewes in the heart of the
High Weald. There is a very friendly campsite next door and a direct train line to London Bridge within 30
minutes on foot from Crowborough Station.
