Taste Of Autumn: Grapes

Taste Of Autumn: Grapes

This week I’m counting down to the Autumnal Equinox.

Today I’m sharing some English, sun-ripened grapes (yes we CAN grow them here).

There are a number of successful English wine makers now. Our closest vineyard is Denbies, in the lee of Boxhill, near Dorking. My favourite wine from their range is called Surrey Gold.

Grapes and wine are very much associated with the Greek God of agriculture, Dionysus. Appropriate for harvest time and for our forthcoming trip to the Greek Island of Kos!
