The English Wine industry is in a fantastic position and continuing to produce exceptional quality wines. To be one of 22 vineyards, out of over 500 in the country, to achieve a Gold medal is truly humbling. Yet again we have to pay tribute to the many people involved in tirelessly managing our vineyard and wines on a day to day basis and who make this all possible.

Congratulations to all the medal winners in this year’s awards and cheers to English wine!
