Knowle wine producers Alan and Faye Pratt are preparing to throw open the gates of their vineyard to celebrate English Wine Week and Gala Week.

From May 28 to June 4, at their vineyard at Lily Farm, in Dalditch Lane, they will showcase their three new wines: an English regional rose, an English regional red and a quality English white.

This is only second year the wines have been available commercially, increasing production from 300 bottles to 3,000 bottles last year. They expect to release a pink sparkling wine next spring.

Throughout the week, there will be the chance to sample and buy, with free taster sessions available.

Also available are 45-minute guided tours around the one-acre site, at 11am and 2.30pm. Tours cost �3 with a donation going to Childline. To book call: 07977057864.

Alan said: “We are a small concern, but we make quality wines.”
