It is a slightly unreal moment. After what seems like a lifetime of effort we have a wine that’s bottled, labelled and with our newly acquired premises license ready to share with the world. Oxney Organic Estate English Rosé 2014 is a grown up rosé. Complex, very dry, summer fruits. Great with food and on its own. And of course organic!
The relief that we have a fantastic product is immense. I should not have doubted it of course – we had amazing winemaker David Cowderoy make it. He whizzed around, giving instructions to the rest of us who muddled through with more luck than judgement. This vintage David says he won’t hold our hands to the same extent, so another hurdle to jump.
The next item on the to do list is sales and marketing. We’re lucky that we already have a fab place just about to stock our wine – trendy Canada Water Cafe www.canadawatercafe.com and very soon the cool Ventnor Arts Club. We’re never, never bored!
