My parents are extraordinary people. As my Mum and Dad they get a gold medal for being supportive. In fact just today my father picked up my three children fed them their tea and looked after them all afternoon (and alone, as my mother was out !) .. whilst I was being filmed cooking Chili Chocolate cakes at home.... in peace.
But I am not writing about their babysitting skills. I am writing about their brilliant wine making skills. ... for my parents have just won some of the top awards in the British wine industry for their wine.
I am so proud of them.
The Mercian Vineyards Association is one of 6 representative bodies for vineyards and wine enthusiasts in Britain. It is a member of the United Kingdom Vineyards Association and has members from all over the UK. There were 150 wines in the competition and Fleurfields won the following awards:
- The best Mercian Sparkling Wine
- The best Vintage Wine
- The best wine in the East midlands
- Silver Medal awarded to the pink Bubbly Champs d’amour de Rose
- Bronze medal awarded to Champs D’amour.
So now my parents have their own award-winning vineyard.
How lucky am I?Very is the answer
