We are re-branding ourselves as Rothley Wine Estate. Kingfishers’ Pool vineyard was getting confused with hot tub companies!!! Kingfishers’ Pool still exists, as does Rothley Wine Ltd, but the new name allows us to be more specific to our geography. We are keeping the kingfisher logo.

The two acre vineyard (0.3 hectare under vine) is located in the village of Rothley. http://www.leicestershirevillages.com/rothley/  between the Rothley Court Hotel and the steam railway station.The boutique winery installed new equipment to ensure quality production and comply with relevant standards.

Once our conservatory tasting room has been completed (see blog) we hope to have groups visiting  by appointment.

There has been much local interest. Radio Leicester has done 3 interviews. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p031c1cs  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p025z84b http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0390lgh
