Dunleavy Vineyards – 2013 Pinot Noir wins award

DSC04846Dunleavy Vineyards are celebrating after winning best local wine’ at the Bristol Good Food Awards. Dunleavy Vineyards were planted in 2008 by owner and manager Ingrid Bates. Ingrid has a background in biology and, after a short stint working in the media, began her viticultural career ten years ago when she took up a job maintaining a vineyard at Thornbury Castle just outside Bristol.

DSC04848Having found her true vocation, her own vineyard was finally planted in the beautiful Wrington Vale just a few weeks before the birth of her first child. A few years down the line, and after much hard work, Dunleavy Vineyards released its first wines in 2013. This first release sold out in just three days and the second, award-winning release is proving to be just at popular.

The wine is currently available in three outlets; Grape&Grind in Bristol, Lye Cross Farm Shop near Wrington and The Wine Shop in Winscombe.
