Bud burst begins at Biddenden

Bud burst begins at Biddenden

Following on from one of the coldest and then wettest winters we’ve seen in a long time, the sun has finally arrived and it really feels as though spring is here at Biddenden.

The winter’s weather has meant that growth in the vineyard is about 2-3 weeks behind, but we are hopeful that the warm spell which has arrived this week will help to push things on and we should see the first of bud burst on the vines in the coming days.

This is a vital time, where consistent, warm weather is key to enable the young shoots to grow & develop as they begin to emerge.  The trees & hedgerows around the vineyards are also beginning to turn green, with the primroses in bloom and bluebells out in the surrounding woods. It’s a lovely time to visit & take in everything springing back to life.

In the winery, we have bottled our 2017 vintages, which will be ready for release later in the year.  It’s also a busy time preparing for the summer season ahead.  You’ll find us out & about at shows throughout the county and we’re finalising our stall holders for our annual food & drink day “Taste the Best of Produced in Kent” here at the vineyard in June.

Don’t forget, we are open to visitors daily with free admission & tastings.  We look forward to welcoming you here at the vineyard soon.
