Hello everyone – it was a great end to the week last week with our wine label design & box design being finalised with both of these now at the respective manufacturers for processing. These can now be revealed right here :-

We’re just a week or so away from our first wines being bottled and ready for sale – so all those of you that were kind enough to pre-order back in November your wines will be with you in just a few short weeks.

So to coincide with the launch of the wines we’ve re-vamped the website which (as you can see) launches today!  

We’ve striped it down and made it much easier for people to book Vineyard Tours, order Adopt-A-Vine’s and, coming soon, buy our wine.

All of the purchasing is now done through our sister website The English Wine Shop – the links will take you to the product page and you can complete your purchase with Credit or Debit Cards or via PayPal as before.

Over the weekend Barry & groundsman Drew attended the Tissington Hall Wedding Fayre on Sunday which went very well, so if you’re attending a wedding this summer look out for English Wines and possibly Amber Valley Wines there!

This week we’ll be tying down the vines to the fruiting wires as the threat of frosts has almost gone and par-taking in the first “bud rubbing” of the season.

From then we’ll be promoting the launch of our wines as much as we can in the lead up to the Derbyshire Food & Drink Festival May 16th & 17th at Kedleston Hall – where you’ll find us running the festival bar with Derventio Brewery.  Come & join us – the sun always shines!

Have a great week everyone.


Duncan & Barry
