Ancient Land, Pastures New: The Creation of a Small English Vineyard

6 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

One day on a Summers evening at his home in an idyllic part of West Berkshire Christopher Cooke decided it might be an excellent place to establish a vineyard. His new memoir, Ancient Land, Pastures New, chronicles the trials and tribulations of bringing that dream to life. Told in a light style with wry humour, the book could be seen as a cross between a vigneron’s alternative to A Year inProvence and a vine-hikers A-Z guide to planting in England.

Join us at the Vineyard – with a glass of his excellent English Sparkling wine in hand, naturally.
