Warden Abbey Vineyard, Biggleswade
A Bedfordshire vineyard?! Yup, that's a thing. So get on down there and pop a cork or two for me.
Once a monastery, Warden Abbey is now a community-run vineyard in Bedfordshire. Four white grape varieties are grown there – Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Regner, and Muller Thurgau – and around 4000-6000 bottles produced per yield. And you can get involved! Head on down for tours, picnics and pruning experiences. And as well as the wines being made from locally grown grapes, they are also ethical, vegan and win awards year after year. Check out the Warden Abbey Sparkling Brut for those cork popping moments, £24 per bottle. Buy direct from the vineyard or a number of local stockists.
