Cuvée and Rosé are here at last!


The poppies are out to celebrate the appearance of the long awaited cuvée (3.5 years to create!) - a delicate sparkling wine with smooth notes of orchard fruits and the most tantalizing of rosés; fragrant with essence of summer berries.  Tastings available at the English Wine and Food Festival this Saturday June 8th at Brightwell vineyard (http://www.englishwineandfoodfestival.co.uk/) and at Hendred Vineyard on 22nd June.

Tidying things up in the vineyard, collecting up the vine stakes.   Wages comprise QGardens ice-cream - seems like fair trade.

Vine nursery


Time to plant a new generation of vines.  Biagio the local expert, has been perfecting his technique for a few years and the ground is prepared very carefully before the cuttings are installed.  A mystery creature has squashed a few.... is it the curious muntjack or the sneaky fox.....
