On 9th May 2017, I visited Dedham Valley Vineyard’s most recent expansion at Stratford Hills in Suffolk. It was fascinating seeing the new vines being planted. They have planted Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier…all for their Sparkling wine. Ben and Tom Bunting, Father and Son, are really pushing forward with the growth of English wine a Dedham Valley and I personally can’t wait to see these vines in full bloom and taste the sparkling in a few years time.
