100 Days To Harvest!

30 June 2015 by Standout UK

It’s Wimbledon week, traditionally the start of flowering at the vineyard.   True to form, look very closely and you will see flowers in the vines.

If pollinated, each tiny flower has the potential to produce a grape.  Rondo (pictured here) is the first variety to flower and it’s an important annual milestone in the vineyard because from flowering it’s only 100 days to harvest…

Start limbering up!  If you’d like to be involved in this year’s harvest, consider this your countdown and e-mail the vineyard to register your interest in taking part – the more the merrier!

Obviously, it will be a little while before these grapes hit your wine glass, so if you cannot wait, we’re delighted that Dedham Vale Sparkling Rosé is now available in M&S!

You can of course always buy the full range online and in our vineyard shop, but the Dedham Vale word is spreading and our wine and cider are available in selected restaurants, shops and wine merchants across the region and beyond…
