Visitors to Kent booking return trips on ferries from Ramsgate to Ostend
may be familiar with various wines from the continent of Europe.
However, by spending time in the south-eastern county they can discover that Britain produces them too.
Holly Buggins, marketing coordinator for Visit Kent, said: "Chaple Down vineyards in and the Biddenden vineyards are a great day out for couples and older people. You can go round and have tours and tastings and things."
This aspect of alcoholic drink production may surprise some people because Kent is most famous for its brewing, with hop houses a distinctive feature of the landscape.
Ramsgate is itself a town that has much to offer visitors, with the resort being a popular destination since the 19th century.
Its modern aspects include the Turner Contemporary, a seafront museum and art gallery displaying cutting-edge art based in the town where the famous painter JWM Turner once lived.
