The Talbot Inn, Mells
I suppose I have always wanted to make wine. As a child; the son of a wine merchant, I grew up with wine as part of my vocabulary. Winemakers sat round our kitchen table, summer holidays were spent in the vineyards of France, I was fascinated by the whole process way before I was old enough to drink it. I went on to become a merchant myself, buying wines I loved and selling them with as much enthusiasm as I could, but in the back of my mind there was always a niggle; I wanted to make the stuff.
Over the last five years I have been making wine in France, Spain, New Zealand and India. This tasting showcases some of the wines created and some of the wines that inspired me along the way.
