Chapel Down vineyard is one of 40 destinations the public may not normally get access to in a promotional event to support the launch of a new model Ford car.
The new Ford B-MAX has been developed especially for the urban driver. While compact in size, its ingenious, easy-access door system gives a 1.5m wide aperture to a spacious and refined interior.
Alongside its unique design, the B-MAX has a multitude of technologies to make driving easier, more enjoyable and more efficient. For example, Active City Stop helps prevent collisions in slow-moving traffic, by automatically brakingu, if necessary. With Ford SYNC control of music and phone, with simple voice commands, SYNC can even read out text messages. A revolutionary 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine delivers the power of a 1.6, with outstanding fuel economy.
To support the launch, Ford has developed a range of 40 events, such as the visit to Chapel Down, a railway and real ale trip, a visit to Classic FM and Kempton Park races.
Ford marketing spokesman Alex Perry says: “Don’t say it too loudly, but British wine is starting to offer up some real competition to our continental cousins. Nowhere is this more apparent than at Chapel Down vineyard, where some of Britain’s finest bubbly is produced.
“The Chapel Down package includes a private tour of the vineyard and winery with an expert guide, so you can see the wine made from grape to bottle. There’ll also be plenty of wine-tasting opportunities, accompanied by some of the finest British cheeses, and even a demonstration of the ancient art of saberage – removing the cork from a bottle using a sword.”
The balloting system allows visitors to choose from the dates, locations and event interests to find their perfect match. There’s also a whole gallery of great images of
the new Ford B-MAX to explore. All entries are chosen by the ballot so applicants may not receive tickets to all the events they apply for.
