It was serendipity rather than anything else…
Back to the family after a sojourn in Bordeaux, wondering what to do over the Bank Holiday Weekend. Thought about sating a long-held desire to go for lunch and a nose around Chapel Down winery at their Tenterden vineyard. Looked them up on the website and saw that – bingo – it is English Wine Week.
No better time to set up a blog about Sussex wine. [Let's call the Kentish honorary Sussex, for the sake of argument...]
Will post more about the wines.
Taken around the vineyard in a group by Dave – who was lovely, and explained the viticultural and vinification processes in an impressively accessible way.
Free tours and tastings at Chapel Down by the way during English Wine Week.
So the clock is ticking. Get yourself over there…
