Chris Foss (Head of Wine Department) and Jo Cowderoy (WineSkills Coordinator) were presented to Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall on Wednesday 13th February. The occasion was a reception hosted by the Worshipful Company of Vintners at Five Kings House in London to celebrate the success and toast the future of English and Welsh wine.
Her Royal Highness is the President of the United Kingdom Vineyards Association and also the Patron of the Plumpton College Charitable Trust. Also present at this event were prominent members of the UK wine industry and members of the wine trade and press.
Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
