Norman Porter sent me the following news on another budding Len Evans : I have followed up an article in the EADT about Carters Vineyard, which is part of the Bunting family business. We visited Tom and had a look around the whole enterprise last Friday. To visit his website click here
Chris Essex writes : On Saturday 27 September I visited a local vineyard to meet Paul Langham (R77-82). He set up a new vineyard at Littleton Panell, just south of Devizes, in 2001. Although he’s got a long way to go to be another Len Evans (G42-48), they have planted over 5000 vines on a 30 acre site and have an apple orchard of some 600 trees. They produce a range of award-winning white, red, rosé and sparking wines, as well as their own range of apple juice and cider.
Before leaving I enjoyed some wine tasting, including an excellent 2006 vintage red that will be released in a few weeks. Unfortunately, this year’s cider crop was not yet ready to drink or take away! Click here to see some pictures I took. To visit his website click here
I’d be interested to hear from any other budding Len Evans. E-mail me by clicking here: Email Chris Essex.
