Thank you and your team for such an enjoyable day. Not only is it a lovely venue and setting but your description of the trials and tribulations of growing vines and making wines was most interesting. I’m sure we’re now much more aware of the peculiarities that growing the same vines in slightly different areas can have on the end result in an English climate which can be so variable!  It makes us much more appreciative of the product when we drink it and the subtle changes that come about year by year that alter the balances in wines.  I’m sure we were all impressed by the detail to which your Vineyard Manager, Elizabeth, goes to ensure consistency of quality.  And the need for detailed records for monitoring even small changes. It is, to say the least, impressive! You’ve done a magnificent job in building up the business over the years and won our admiration we look forward to many Sunday lunches in the months ahead as another small business step forward now that Carole has returned home to join you. Your personal attention to our wellbeing throughout the day made it very much “your place” and so welcoming, thank you.”
