We’ve had a busy summer over at Toppesfield, with near perfect weather conditions we’re on target for a bumper crop of Bacchus and Pinot Noir. We also have some new awards and press features we’re proud to share…

We’re honoured to have won Wine of the Year from the East Anglian Vineyard Association for the second time for our Bacchus Reserve 2017 as well as a Silver for our 2017 Rosé. The winners were chosen from a record number of 73 entries. You can read more about the awards via the East Anglian Times here. The photo below is from the August edition of the National Grape Press magazine (sadly Pete was unable to attend the EAVA competition).

 

 

We were both able to attend the Sommelier Wine Awards stand at the Imbibe event at Olympia, following Toppesfield Vineyard winning one of the SWA’s four UK gold awards for our Bacchus Reserve 2016. It was so exciting to see our wine alongside other National Winners. You can learn more about the SWA and the tasting notes applied to Toppesfield wines here.

 

 

Toppesfield Wine Centre

The Wine Centre was part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The development and construction of a wine centre was initiated to promote sales of Toppesfield Wines and Toppesfield Beers, creating new employment opportunities in the village and rural tourism through vineyard tours, wine tastings and cultural events.
