The late Summer warmth we are currently experiencing is no doubt very welcome after a challenging growing season of unpredictable weather. Yields may be slightly lower this year, but the feedback we are getting about 2021 product sales [to date] is that they have been high. Whether sparkling or still, the thirst for the wines of Great Britain and Ireland has left many of you running low on stocks (or running out) with staycations, the current wedding boom, busy vineyard tours and online sales adding to the demand. It seems that though harvest may be a little bit late for some, it can't come soon enough. We wish you a good pressing season.

Here is our A-Z of top picks of essentials for the season ahead ...
