WINE AND WHEELS OAKEN GROVE VINEYARD BIKE RIDE
The first event in our Vineyard Series for 2022 and we are thrilled to be holding it at the rustic, family run Oaken Grove Vineyard just outside of Henley-on-Thames. Come along and enjoy a relaxed ride around a fully signed route after which you can look forward to tasting a selection of Oaken Groves wines from their beautiful terrace that overlooks the vines, nestled deep within the Chiltern Hills.
Wine tasting will include 2 still and 2 sparkling wines to sample, along with a grazing box containing a selection of local cheeses and cured meats, accompanied by handmade pickle, olives, nuts, cherry tomatoes, fruits and crisp breads. There is even a pizza oven for anyone with a larger appetite (pizza not included in ticket price).
