Wine Tasting Evening Brings Sparkle to Hurst!

Two vineyards present their Sussex wines

Hurst Foundation welcomed 60 guests for our wine tasting evening, hosted by Dominic Mott, featuring a selection of wines to savour from two local, award-winning, Sussex Vineyards: Bewl Water Vineyard near Wadhurst and Court Garden Vineyard in Ditchling.

OJ Ashton Kirby (Star - 2021) presented several Bewl Water wines and Hugo Corney from Court Garden guided everyone through his wines. There was much to learn about the history of each vineyard and the different grapes they grow, as part of a very successful tutored wine tasting evening.

With nibbles to complement the wines, it was lovely to see so many OJs catching up and newer members of the Hurst Foundation attending the first of our 175th Anniversary events. See photos here....

The wines tasted can still be purchased, as follows:
