Mushroom Madness 7th November @ Frontline

It has been more than a month of harvesting for Charlotte, both in the vineyard - where she has just finished picking the sangiovese, which is beautifully healthy and ripe and now bubbling away in the barrels next to the Pinot Noir that we picked in September: 2010 looks to be a good year - but also reaping some wonderful reviews in the press... the release of the 2011 wine guides has lead to a fantastic 5 stars in the Guida Espresso for the Sacromonte; we are in the inaugural Guida Slow Wine, awarded a Slow Wine rosette;  and for the first time we are in Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book. Exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure, the olive harvest is next so that we have some delicious new oil for the November pop-up....
