The year ahead is already filled with exciting events, from tours, wine fairs and workshops to illustrated talks, hen dos and food festivals. The 2019 vintage is almost ready and we are looking forward to sharing it with the world.
BEDROCK WINE FAIR: To begin the year we have been invited to share our wines at the Bedrock Wine Fair in Peckham, organised by Wines Under The Bonnet. This event celebrates independant natural wine producers from around the world and takes place on Sunday 3rd May in the wonderful Copeland Park & Bussey Building in Peckham’s Cultural Quarter. More details here .
WINE TASTING AT THE FORGE: We are delighted to be returning to the annual Bristol charity fundraiser at The Forge on Sunday 17 May. It will be the third year that the inspired catering duo that is Pasetti and Boote has brought together natural wine and cider buyers and producers to showcase their latest vintages. This will be the first opportunity to taste our 2019 vintage – 3 biodynamic petillant naturel wines. Tickets cost £20 and include a taste of around 50 wines, ciders and perries and a cheese plate from The Bristol Cheesemonger, with bread from Farro Bakery. All the proceeds will go to Bristol Charity, The Matthew Tree Project which support people at a time of crisis. It will be another sell-out so book your tickets early.
CHELTENHAM FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL: As part of the Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival 2020, we have been invited to give one of the free Wine Tasting Talks. Robin will be giving a presentation on what makes biodynamic wine so special and how this natural and sustainable method creates authentic wines intimately connected with place, as well as guiding you through a tasting of our wines.
VINEYARD TOURS AND TASTINGS: This year we will be running monthly tours of the vineyard from spring to autumn, the dates of which are on our calendar page.
PRIVATE EVENTS: We also cater for private groups on the vineyard and have welcomed birthday and hen parties, wine clubs, gardening groups and businesses wanting a social event in a different location. We offer a relaxed tour and tasting with plenty of time to sit and chat. Simple food can also be provided. Please get in touch if you would like to organise a tour and tasting for your group email@example.com
BIODYNAMIC WINEGROWING WORKSHOPS: In summer, there will be another opportunity to come to our workshops on biodynamic vinegrowing and winemaking at the vineyard. The day is suitable for anyone with an interest in biodynamics and/or natural wine, and last year attracted a very sociable group of vineyard owners, wine buyers and writers, allotment holders and people working in the bar and restaurant industry. You will be given an introduction to biodynamics, find out about the ‘preparations’ and how we create and use them, have a guided tour of the vineyard and learn about Demeter standards for grape-growing and wine-making. There will be a lunch and the day concludes with a tasting of our petillant naturel wines. There will be two workshops this year – Sunday July 12th & Monday August 17th
