Harvest Safely Gathered In

First volunteer takes the plunge

Next volunteer steps in

We took two harvests in September, with much merriment when the grapes were trodden in the traditional manner. The harvest on 18th October was a colder day and the Orion and Regent departed to Halfpenny Green Vineyard to be made into a pink sparkling wine called “Spirit of Freedom” in honour of the abolition of the slave trade (see history section).

Believe it or not, the volunteers are keen to harvest again next year!
