An adynaton is a figure of speech depicting something so unlikely as to verge on the impossible. Vineyards in Great Britain? English red wine? Any prospect in late July 2011 that Aldwick’s recently planted vines might thrive, much less produce internationally accredited wine? Pigs might fly!

Single-minded determination can confound naysayers. The will to succeed can triumph over adversity. Aldwick’s logo epitomises our ascent: a heraldic pig with elevated wings.

Flying Pig is a “vin de soif” – a wine for thirst. Best served slightly chilled.
