Barbara’s vineyard update

Wyfold RainbowA last-minute rush of volunteers ensured we were well supported for our work-party evening rubbing the trunk buds (unwanted!!) off the Wyfold vines.

I think a number of people waited for the latest weather forecast and I was myself unsettled as I drove down the lane in the late afternoon, by what looked like a tornado coming towards me! Turned out to be a quick squall followed by a lovely sunny evening and a spectacular rainbow.

We completed the work in double quick time and settled down to an enjoyable barbecue and wine tasting. A toast to the crew with the award winning Wyfold 2009 bubbles finished the evening and we all look forward to the next gathering on June 27th.

Our many thanks to all who joined in. See you in June!

About Laithwaites Wine

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux... and fell in love with real wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share these delicious wines with friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that boutique wineries were soon queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from... including red, white and rosé, plus Champagne and sparkling, beer and cider.
