Sparkling Wine Tasting with Rutherford’s Punting, Cambridge

We are thrilled to have partnered with our friends at Rutherford’s Punting in Cambridge to launch a brand-new tasting experience on the River!


Start your weekend off in style punting through the glorious Cambridge College Backs with a glass of Saffron Grange sparkling wine in hand.

We have partnered with Rutherford’s in Cambridge to offer the ultimate alfresco experience this Summer.

Join us on a Rose Marque awarded 45 minute private tour on the River Cam while you sit back, relax and enjoy three of our latest vintage sparkling wines from the comfort of your punt.

A member of the Saffron Grange Team will take you through the tasting and tell you the history of the vineyard, English sparkling wines and more whilst your Rutherford’s punting guide expertly punts you through the world-famous College Backs and entertains you with the best stories and amazing facts behind the creation of the City of Cambridge.

Your tasting includes a sample of three of our limited-edition, award-winning sparkling wines led by a member of the Saffron Grange team.
Paired with matching nibbles, this is the perfect punting experience to kick off your Friday night.

These are exclusive shared event experiences, bookable on Friday evenings only. Please note places are limited and advanced booking is essential.
