The presentation formed part of the United Kingdom Vineyards Association’s (UKVA) annual dinner, held at Vintner’s Hall in City of London, to which English & Welsh wine producers, suppliers and critics were invited to attend.  Camilla, who became president of the UKVA last year, was in attendance as her first event on behalf of the association.

The Duchess was talked through tastings of the selected English wines, and made comment “I have never ever tried any English red.  It is much better than I thought it was going to be…”

Biddenden Vineyards is Kent’s oldest commercial vineyard producing a full range of award-winning red, white, rose and sparkling wines.  The vineyard is open to visitors throughout the year with free admission & tastings.  The full range of wines, including Biddenden Gamay, can be purchased direct from Biddenden Vineyards’ shop, online at www.biddendenvineyards.com/shop and from selected outlets throughout Kent & Sussex.
