Join us for a drinks and canapés reception followed by a 4 course dinner and coffee and petit fours on Saturday 26th May where we will be joined by guest speaker Stuart Barford.
Stuart joined Bolney Wine Estate, a family-run West Sussex vineyard which makes award winning English Still and Sparkling wines, in 2011. After trips to Stellenbosch in South Africa, Otago in New Zealand, Bordeaux in France and Tuscany in Italy Stuart decided that he wanted to follow his passion in wine. He left the high flying arena of finance after working at Schroders, Cazenove and Lazard and went to study at Plumpton College in East Sussex. Plumpton College is the centre for the future up and coming winemakers and previous alumni can be found throughout the world making award winning wines. He graduated from Plumpton College in 2011 with one of the awards for best student. He is now at Bolney Wine Estate helping to raise the profile of their award winning still and sparkling English wines.
