The week in pictures

 Brigadier Jonathan Bourne-May, Worshipful Company of Vintners and Lee Dyer, Winbirri Vineyards

This week saw Winbirri Vineyards put Norfolk on the map by winning the Wine of the Year trophy at the English & Welsh Wine of the Year Competition 2016. Here Brigadier Jonathan Bourne-May of the Worshipful Company of Vintners presents Lee Dyer, winemaker at Winbirri Vineyards, with the award at Vintners’ Hall.

As an English wine-producing region, Norfolk is generally overshadowed by the likes of Sussex, Kent, Cornwall and Hampshire.

However, as the English Wine Producers marketing body points out, it has lots of potential, with generally less rainfall and more sunshine than these other counties.

Lee Dyer’s Bacchus, pictured here, adds to the growing claim for Bacchus to become a signature grape of English wine. Click here to find out about Great British Wines’ upcoming Bacchus-only English wine tasting.
