The Mount Vineyard, situated in the commuter village of Shoreham, has been on my radar now for the past year or so. I harvested grapes with them last Autumn which was truly a “good for the soul” experience and in summer went to the rather expensive and lets-face-it very middle class food and music festival which had an incredible selection of food and drink stands and distinctly average music! Suited me ok though, I was there for the halloumi fries and Thai-style rolled ice cream.
For this visit however, I was there with a group of friends to attend their #WineWednesdays – an evening event they hold on, yes you’ve guessed it, Wednesdays throughout the summer months. At £35 a head – you get a tour of the vines, wine tasting and nibbles. Despite the rain throughout the day, we were all surprised to see how well attended the event was – there was plenty of groups like ourselves and lots of couples.
