Coming to Fruition

Following our grape harvest in the autumn, we finally have an end product.  After volunteering for almost 3 years at the vineyard it is nice to see hard work and dedication coming to fruition.  I hope our vines will continue to thrive and provide our community with a plentiful selection of wine over the coming years.

Wine from the vineyard, veg from the market garden, meat and eggs from the farm and fruit from the orchard.  What more could one want?

It must feel good to see the fruits of your labours and to taste it too. I hope you have a bottle or two to sip in the garden on a summer evening:)

Unfortunately Rosie, the volunteers were only allowed to purchase one bottle each. The yield was very small resulting in around 150 bottles in total!

Sounds wonderful!

Hope you are feeling better, Simone!

What a shame you can only sample one bottle after all your hard work and dedication but you can make it a special occassion perhaps on a lovely summers evening sipping it slowly and enjoying every moment!
