Delegation Visit to Wine Centre

After these presentations, the delegates were eager to offer the many gifts they had brought with them, and we were delighted to receive them. They were then shown around Plumpton’s Wine Centre, with its new research winery, tasting room, and commercial winery, before being treated to an English wine tasting.

Showcased was Plumpton Estate’s Bacchus and Classic Sparkling Brut NV, as well as a wine from Plumpton graduate Kristina Studzinski (Off The Line Vineyard: Dog Rose rosé wine). In exchange, the delegates offered us three examples of wines they had brought from Gansu Province: a delicious sweet ice-wine, an excellent red Shiraz, and a stunning Pinot noir.

The visitors were joined for lunch by members of Plumpton College’s Management Team, and much jovial discussion took place. The delegates then got back on their bus to head off to Ridgeview Wine Estate for another Sussex Wine experience. The day was a great success, and we very much hope that this will be the start of a new relationship between our two young, but dynamic and successful, wine regions.
