Chilworth Manor Vineyard is now in production, following a launch party held at the Manor on Sunday, May 20.
Everyone who had taken part in the picking of the grapes, and those who have expressed an interest in following the development of the vineyard were invited to a talk on how the wine was made.
The Wrigley family stressed how much they wanted to share the story of the vineyard with the local community and to involve the community as much as possible.
Attendees were then invited into the walled garden to taste this year’s vintage and to have the opportunity to buy a bottle or two to take home.
The newly appointed Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Mike Parsons, known to those in the west of the village as their elected borough councillor, attended officially with his wife and said a few words – pictured below with Graham and Mia Wrigley.
