Breaky Bottom Celebrates excellent harvest for 2017

Last month provided a great harvest for Breaky Bottom Vineyard nestled in the South Downs near Lewes. This years harvest from 6 acres of beautiful Sussex Countryside has provided Peter Hall the wine maker with an excellent harvest Seyval Blanc (more than double last years harvest) and higher than average yields for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Mernier. This years harvest is estimated to be around 13,000 bottles for 2017 which is excellent considering the air frost that impacted many UK and European vineyards earlier this year , in some instances wiping out emerging buds in whole estates. Peter said about the harvest; It was a delightful occasion with many family and friends helping with the harvest. A harmonious moment enjoying a well deserved home made farm house lunch and glass or two of wine as we gentle pressed the grapes in the winery.' Friends, family and dogs all helped with the harvest and I must admit the homemade cakes and desert menu was amazing. We look forward to enjoying the fruits of our labour in several years time.
