Bumper Harvest for local Dunleavy Vineyards

This year’s hot summer has led to a bumper Pinot Noir crop for Dunleavy Vineyards. The Somerset grown grapes were picked on a beautiful sunny morning, loaded into a van and driven straight to the winery just outside Glastonbury. Once here, they were immediately pressed and the juice was pumped into a huge tank ready to begin the winemaking process. This year’s crop was very high in sugar and will be used by International Award Winning Winemaker Steve Brooksbank to make a fantastic still rose wine. 

Ingrid Bates, the Bishopston based vineyard owner and manager, says: “Last year’s wine sold out in just four days so we’re sure that the 2014 release will be just as popular when it’s ready.” 

The wine from this year’s harvest should be available around May 2014 from Grape & Grind on Gloucester Road in Bristol and The Wine Shop in Winscombe, North Somerset.
