Bumper Harvest for local Dunleavy VineyardsOctober 22nd, 2013
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.
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.
