Shillingford Hill, OX10 8LJ
This was a fun event in 2011. This will only take place if the weather is fine.
The vines are trained at chest height and you simply cut them, chat, sing enjoy the surroundings. Coffee served about 11am and lunch around 1pm with free wine !
A number of us staying on in 2011 to watch / help with the pressing of the grapes.
Brightwell Vineyard grows seven grape varieties planted on the flinty chalk greens and and gravel of the Thames Valley, producing white, rosé, red and sparkling wines. Our Wine Shop is situated to the right of the driveway on entry through the wall into the estate. It is open for tasting and sales every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12.00 - 18.00. This is on the same road as the Shillingford Bridge Hotel going towards Wallingford.
If we get 20 pickers the vineyard will be exclusive to OSW members.
There is a bus service back into Oxford & Reading.
Is there any taxi volunteers ? so the pickers can enjoy a little wine with lunch?
