To support the Corn Exchange Theatre in Wallingford, in its efforts to raise money for roof repairs http://www.cornexchange.org.uk/roof-fund-appeal/, Brightwell Vineyard will be running 2 of our vineyard tour and wine tasting events this season with the proceeds going to the roof appeal. The first will be on Thursday 1st June at 7pm and the second on Saturday 17th June at 11am. The tours last approx. 2 hours with 5 wines tasted and cost £12.50 per person. Please email or phone to book. A very pleasant way to help save a local institution.
Our annual grape harvest takes place every October. We pick on 20 days over 4 weeks from about the 10th Oct. Starting at 9am, we pick until 1.30pm, with a mid morning coffee break, and then stop for a well deserved lunch when previous vintages can be tried. No picking in the afternoon but pickers are welcome to watch the processing which starts at the winery about 3pm.
If you would like to join us, please email.
