Old & New Combine To Keep Everyone Bubbly For The Winter Months

We are more than half way through 2016! The much needed rain finally came and our vineyards got the message that it is time for them to have a short nap before spring. Here at Wildehurst we have been very busy. Chris Hurst celebrated his 80th birthday at the end of May and in his honour we released the maiden…

Things Might Be Winding Down But That Doesn’t Mean Nothing is Happening.
