Up-and-coming competitions

Now is the time to be making a Rosé wine for the Inter-Circle competition with Tunbridge Wells in August, and a bilberry wine for the country wine class at our Open Show in September.

Both these wines can be made to a recipe of your choice. If you would like some ideas have a look on the recipe page on our website.

I am just starting wine making so could really use some Demijohns. I live close to S'oaks so easy collecting.

I have a black grape vine ( just turning black now) probably enough to fill a flexitub. I live in Blean Nr Canterbury if anyone is this way and would like them
