Tuffon Hall Vineyard at Castle Hedingham is hosting a free tasting day on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1, to celebrate its success in the inaugural Independent English Wine Awards.
The vineyard’s 2015 Bacchus secured one of only three gold medals awarded by the judges when the results were announced last month.
Monday’s tasting event will run from noon until 4pm, with 2014 Bacchus on sale at the reduced price of £8 per bottle and the medal-winning 2015 vintage available at £10 a bottle, a 20% discount on the normal price.
Tuffon Hall Vineyard, run by Angus and Pod Crowther, was created in 2011 with the planting of five acres of Bacchus, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes.
Angus’s family have been arable farmers for six generations, spanning more than 100 years, specialising in growing milling wheat (for bread making) and malting barley (for brewing beer and distilling whisky).
