Medals!

King Richard won a silver medal and War Horse and High Hopes each attained bronze in the Independent English Wine Awards 2019 competition in Bristol. We are over the moon – to say the least!

Plastic Free Vineyard

Rothley Village has joined the Surfers Against sewage campaign to rid the oceans of plastic. The entire village is striving to get rid of single use plastic. At the vineyard we are “doing our bit” with great enthusiasm. We regularly use our coracle to clear plastic from the Rothley Brook – see photo.

Scent Tests

Did you know we will be doing “scent tests” during the tutored wine tastings with Laura Hadland. See the Visit the Vineyard page for dates and booking details.
