It was a nail-biting end to the season for volunteers at Warden Abbey Community Vineyard this year as the cold start to the year meant a late harvest.  But the lovely summer weather brought its rewards and the vineyard is celebrating collecting over 6.5 tonnes of beautiful clean fruit.  This should equate to around 4,700 bottles – almost four times the amount bottled in the difficult conditions of 2012.
