The industry predicts that 2023 will be a vintage year for English wine due to the combination of a wet spring and a subsequent heatwave, leading to early flowering vines, abundant bunches and potentially a bountiful harvest, similar to 2018.
Kerry Vale Vineyard continuously monitors grape sugar levels. Once the right balance of sugar and acid is reached, the grapes will be picked, with September 26 expected to be the first day of harvest. To help with the grape harvest visit: www.kerryvalevineyard.co.uk.
Vineyard tours are organised every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from May to September. The vineyard, which is open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday, boasts an award-winning coffee shop that serves homemade food, cakes and wine.
There is also a shop where the award-winning wines can be sampled and purchased with other local, artisan produce and gifts.
