Vineyard tour

Sealwood Cottage Vineyard

A suggestion was made that we have a Mercia group tour of Sealwood Cottage Vineyard, Linton. Fourteen members and friends enjoyed a very convivial, if rather cool, summer's evening.

John explained about the different vines and the very labour intensive work undertaken to keep them in good condition. One member with three vines in her greenhouse picked up some good tips!

The vineyard and cottage are in a wonderful location. John Goodall, owner and viticulturalist, explained how he'd taken over a derelict, listed building in 2008 and it all started from there.

Then of course it was into the marquee to sample the wines.
