Learn about London viniculture and have a glass of wine on us!

Have you ever fancied making your own wine? Would you like to know which grapes grown in this country are suitable for making wine? Or would you just like to see one of London’s few registered vineyards in action – and taste some of its produce? 

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, come along to a talk on viniculture in North London, to be held at Lawrence Street Allotments, Mill Hill, on Sunday, 2 July 2017 at 12.30.   Tony Fernandes, who produces excellent still and sparkling wine from grapes grown on his vineyard on site, will explain how to grow, prune and harvest grapes for wine-making. He will explain how to create a vineyard on an allotment and give a short history of the LSA vineyard, outlining his successes – and his problems! – as a viniculturist. 

The talk and visit to the vineyard will be followed by a wine tasting, accompanied by bread and cheese, tea and coffee and delicious home-made cakes. 

Tickets are available on the door for £10.00 or in advance for £8.00 from Marcia MacLeod, Flat 1, 31 Dennington Park Road, London NW6 1BB. For further information contact Marcia at 020 7435 6762.
