Wealden Times Party
I was very lucky to be invited by The Wealden Times to drinks at Hush Heath Winery last week. It was a glorious Spring evening and the Vineyard - tucked away down a lane near Staplehurst - is surrounded by absolutely stunning countryside. We oohed and aahed at the gorgeous setting, the lovely barmy evening, the absolutely divine wine and the prettiest canapes. My son, who works at Murcatto Wines in Cranbrook, recommended I should try the Balfour Brut Rose. What an excellent choice that turned out to be! If anyone still entertains any doubts about English Wine, let them hurry along to any of our wonderful local Vineyards and arrange a tasting. I have recently been totally blown away by the Pinot Noir at Biddenden, the Bacchus at Chapel Down and now this magical pink fizz.
