Tasting Notes
kharin and I tried a bottle of Fonthill Glebe's Elderflower Wine on Friday. It was pleasant, but perhaps a bit syrupy, and on the whole, I think I prefer the Lurgashall Winery's version of that offering. As the Proms approach, I am reminded that there's an off licence close to Paddington station that stocks Lyme Bay Winery produce, so perhaps I shall sample their elderflower, too.

A few weeks ago uitlander and I shared a bottle of Lurgashall's Plum Wine, which was excellent. Coincidentally, and independently of her suggestion, I also acquired a bottle of Fonthill Glebe's Peach Wine last weekend, which we shall no doubt share when she is recovered.

We had some of the Peach Wine last Satuday. It was really very pleasant, and we must hit that Farmer's market again (if nothing else I desperately ned to restock).

Lurgashall is within driving range of jennyh and apparrently they do tours. I would be very tempted to do one, only I know who would hve to organise the whole thing including the taxi back to Guildford.

Enjoy. Cambridge's elder-geek pub The Carlton Arms stocks a whole range of Lurgashall wines including the silver birch and the rose petal, both of which satisfy my sweet tooth.
