For the first time in three years, local vineyard Wellhayes Vineyard is holding a party on Saturday 25th May from 12.30pm to launch the release of the 2019 vintage.

The Wellhayes Sparkling Wine has won many awards and sells out quickly. Unlike the large Champagne houses which have large reserves which are blended to ensure a consistent house style each year, Wellhayes owners, Simon and Alison Routh, make the wine on site intheir traditional Devon bank barn solely from the grapes grown in their 1 hectare vineyard.

This makes each year a unique expression of the grapes that came off the field that year. With less than 2,000 bottles available, the 2019 vintage is described as having a fine mousse and lively acidity with a fresh taste of strawberry and a hint of raspberry, and is likely to be highly sought after.

A limited number of tickets for the launch are available at www.wellhayesvineyard.co.uk/party
