The Ultimate Hiver Experience is a full day, immersive beekeeping, beer and wine tasting experience.
This is the ultimate luxury experience for any foodies, beer or wine enthusiasts or someone with a love for the great outdoors.
After two sold-out seasons at Hiver’s Urban Experience, we’re delighted to announce the release of our Rural Hiver Experience, in partnership with wonderful award-winning Sussex Winery, Albourne EstateAt The Ultimate Hiver Experience, the day is yours but you can expect:
• Enjoy a tea or coffee and pastry on arrival • Suit up for an hour of hands on beekeeping • Relax with a tutored beer and food matching session to get your appetite going • Then take a picnic hamper of carefully selected artisan produce for lunch at your leisure somewhere on the winery grounds, in the boathouse or the woodland dens • After lunch is your chance to enjoy a tutored wine tasting and masterclass
The Ultimate Experience starts with a short introduction to Bees and Beekeeping while overlooking the South Downs and Sussex Countryside. We'll then get suited up for a hive inspection and help Hiver's Beekeeper in handling the frames and checking the health of the hive. After the fun of getting up close with the 'Ladies', we'll retreat to the winery tasting room to relax over a tutored beer and food matching session before leaving you to enjoy a hamper lunch. After which, it's wine-time with a vineyard tour and masterclass from the on-site sommelier. Finally, you're free to explore the rest of the vineyard, onsite shop and bar and answer any questions you might have. The vineyard is part of the Sussex wine route with many pubs and sights nearby to enjoy.
Hiver uses only British suppliers and ingredients and the honeys that we will taste are raw British honeys from independent beekeepers.
