Welland Valley Vineyard evening out

Welland Valley Vineyard evening out

The 2.5 acre Vineyard and cider orchard was established in 1991 by both David and Jane Bates on a south facing slope between Marston Trussell and East Farndon. Last Wednesday 15th July, 17 members visited  the vineyard for a tour and a talk about their production. It was a lovely evening sitting  outside amongst the vines hearing about how the vineyard was set up and all that is involved with the wine production throughout the year, all of which is done by the couple themselves. A variety of French and German vines are cultivated to produce their quality bottle fermented sparkling wines, with the grapes all  being pressed and vinefied and bottled all on site. Cider apples are also grown and made into an award winning cider, namely Roundhead and King Richard 111.
It was a really interesting and enjoyable evening with sampling of some of their wines to make the evening complete!
