This week we had the exciting opportunity to visit one of our local vineyards in nearby Hastings, run by the Carr-Taylor family. Linda and David Carr-Taylor planted the 21 acre vineyard in 1971, and it's quickly grown to the 37 acres site it is today. Their son Alex, together with a small team, run the vineyard and its tours. Having won 36 awards and medals since 2011, Carr Taylor's wines are well recognised and the vineyard tours highly recommended.
On a sunny Friday morning, Willow and I set off to Oxfordshire for Chiltern Valley’s Winery Tour and Wine Tasting Experience! We were very excited as neither one of us had completed a tour and tasting experience before, and knew little about wine - other than that we liked to drink it!
