We will be releasing out very first vintage in 2015 – a still white and a still pink, these bottles should be available in May this year.
It’s also going to be a big year for the other side of our business The English Wine Shop – we hope to making a very big announcement soon about an exciting new event that we hope will be this year. English Wine sales in 2015 have been predicted to smash through the £100 million barrier, so I guess we’re releasing our first wines in the right year.
So what’s happening in the vineyard right now? Well we have a shed that will be erected in the next couple of weeks to keep us and our wonderous team of volunteers warm during the cold months. We’ll get some pictures on here as soon as they’re ready.
We’re delaying our pruning this year to help against any frost damage the later we can prune the better, so we’ll be looking at March / April time for the pruning – if you fancy a couple of hours in the vineyard then make sure you let us know and we’ll contact you with dates & times.
We’ll be ordering the materials for the rest of the trellising work this month as well – so plot 1 at Doehole will be fully complete by this summer.
Don’t forget The English Wine Shop has it’s January sale on right now until Saturday 31st – there’s some great wines available at great prices so if your wine rack is looking a little sad after the festive period or you’re planning your wine revival after the January Dryathalon then make sure you head over there & bag yourselves a bargain. www.englishwineshop.co.uk
That’s it for now – but we promsie they’ll be more info on here from us this year, it’s a big year and we intend to make it a great one.
