We are running Wine Tastings with restaurant critic Laura Hadland one Sat/Sun per month. See https://rothleywine.com/?page_id=1734 You will need to book promptly as these are proving very popular.
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 and have a collaborative arrangement with a nearby vineyard.
The two acre vineyard (0.48 hectare under vine) is located in the village of Rothley. http://www.leicestershirevillages.com/rothley/ between the Rothley Court Hotel and the G.C.R. steam railway station.The boutique winery installed new equipment to ensure quality production and comply with relevant standards. We can accommodate small groups of up to eight in our conservatory tasting room.

We are getting known in English wine circles, see http://greatbritishwine.com/wineries/rothley-wine-estate/ and in Niche magazine on
Radio Leicester have done 5 interviews.
