The ultimate Afternoon Tea experience at Harts Barn Cookery School. Harts talented tutor Andy Robertson, also known as Professor Pastry, will teach you how to bake and prepare a selection of delectable delights, before you have an English wine tasting with Vine & Orchard.
All our cookery experiences kick off with a glass of something sparkling, in this case English Sparkling Wine, before you adorn your aprons and get stuck into the class. Through demonstration and practical teaching, you’ll spend the afternoon making both sweet and savoury treats – cakes, pastries and petit sandwiches!
Once your Afternoon Tea is assembled and presented on Harts Barn’s vintage china, you’ll then sit down in their Apple Barn Dining Room to sample your efforts alongside a tea of your choice. Here, we will also conduct a tasting of six English wines, introducing you to some of our favourite producers and a number of award-winning wines.
Elements may vary according to the seasons, but an example menu is as follows:
You’ll be given recipe packs and information on all the wines to take home. Impress your friends and family with your new baking skills and wine knowledge!
This experience includes:

Harts Barn Cookery School
Cookery classes and experiences in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.
The ethos behind Harts Barn Cookery School is ‘cooking for all’. No matter what age, or what skill level you’re at, they teach everything from basics to banquets. Accessible, practical and fun, as well as being delicious too!
Harts Barn already provide a wide range of cookery and baking classes, and we’re excited to reveal that we’ve teamed up with them to host a series of exciting Vine & Orchard food and wine experiences. Not only will you gain some new skills and knowledge in the kitchen, but you’ll learn about wine, discover the best wine pairings, and enjoy being able to tuck into the fruits of your labour with a selection of wines that match the theme of the class.
We can accommodate both small and large groups at our Vine & Orchard events with Harts Barn. Get in touch if you don’t see a date that suits you, or if you have a specific class theme that you’d like us to organise.
Vine & Orchard Wine Tastings
With every Vine & Orchard experience, you’ll receive a wine tasting of six to eight wines that is tailored to the event you’ve booked. Learn how to taste wine and understand the basics behind food pairing with your WSET-qualified educator.
There’s more to it than just red wine with red meats and white wine with fish and chicken, though that’s a good start.
Perhaps it’s English Sparkling Wine with your Afternoon Tea; a citrusy white with seafood; a dry rosé with cheese; a perfumed red with lamb; a heavy red with steak; an off-dry wine with something spicy.
Whether you’re a lover of Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay, Malbec or Merlot, Vine & Orchard invites you to explore, taste and discover.
