Oxfordshire producer Bothy Vineyard will produce almost 6,000 bottles of wine from its 2011 harvest if production plans are achieved.
Owners Richard and Sian Liwicki are currently in the throes of production.
Sian Liwicki says: “Another successful harvest has passed. If everything goes to plan we’ll be producing some 5,700 bottles of wine. The grapes were in tip top condition so 2011 could be a super vintage.
“Stocks of wine in our shop are diminishing fast, so we have decided to close our shop from the end of November. This will allow us to concentrate on winter pruning and family activities.”
There will be a special weekend for Christmas shoppers on Saturday December 10 and Sunday December 11 when the vineyard will be open from 10.00am to 5.00pm.
Tomorrow, Liwcki’s daughter, Zoe, will join Sian in selling very pretty homemade cupcakes for £1 each in aid of Children in Need.
“Do drop by to buy a few,” says Liwicki.
