Liz went to London where the UK Vineyards Association wine competition awards were presented at the splendid Vintners Hall. The Worshipful company of Vintners are one of the oldest livery companies of London and it was a privilege to be allowed over their hallowed threshold. It was a great moment to receive the bronze medal for Spirit of Freedom, where the grapes were grown at our Rothley vineyard and made into sparkling wine at Halfpenny Green Vineyard. BUT, even more proud of the silver award given to “King Richard” as we made this wine in out boutique winery at home on the vineyard.
