Located within 20 minutes of both Henley and Windsor is the historic estate of Stanlake Park. With roots back to 1166 and a manor house dating to the late 16th century, you might expect a barrel of airs and graces. Far from it, Peter and Annette Dart took over in 2005 and have created a welcoming tasting room and well-stocked Cellar Shop alongside the estate's 30-year old wine business and beautiful gardens.

Two things that make Stanlake Park special: apparently it has the largest variety of vines in the UK – 27 at the last count – and its charming walled one-acre vineyard. Perhaps unsurprisingly with this CV, it produces over a dozen still and sparkling wines of all hues.

Wine tastings are available every day in the cosy shop – a converted brick-built greenhouse – and there are tables outside and in the walled garden for the warmer months. In the summer the shop stocks a range of cheese, homemade pickles and other nibbles to accompany the wine. Take yourself on a self-guided tour of the walled garden, or join one of the Summer Friday tours.

The shop stocks other English wines, local beers and foods, wine books and accessories.
