    The Vineyard Years. A podcast. Chapter 14 : The merry month of May

    A report on the modest progress of our Trapping Hill vineyard set against the back drop of English vineyards generally. We've a long way to go.

    The Vineyard Years A podcast. Chapter 13 : It’s all kicking off

    Well we asked for buds and we got them even though they were reluctant to pop their heads out of their plastic tubes. It was freezing this April as you can see. But we got the buds and 200 willows intended to be windbreaks as well. This is vineyard years podcast chapter 13.

    The Vineyard Years Podcast. Chapter 12, where it all began

    The Vineyard Years Podcast. Chapter 12, where it all began

    It seems only right that I should at some point give credit to where this crazy idea of a vineyard in the Yorkshire Dales all began. The brief answer is it began in a place called the Ferguson Valley in Western Australia. We were living there for a year on an exchange programme. A beautiful place and made even more so by being perhaps Australia's newest wine region. It was here that I began to dream the dream. Listen on.

    The Vineyard Years. The Shed

    The Vineyard Years. The Shed

    The real reason I wanted a vineyard, so I could legitimately have my own shed. It didn't quite work out as planned but I got the shed which was what really mattered.



    This is the proper version of podcast 11 that appeared a while ago but without the actual podcast. Duh.

    Vineyard Years Podcast Chapter 9

    Vineyard Years Podcast Chapter 9

    The last chapter of 2013. It’s entitled a review of the year but on re-acquaintance, it’s really nothing of the sort. It casts an envious eye towards other established vineyards and their success, mostly down south. At a local level there is my first attempt to set up a wine-tasting evening. Did it happen? You’ll have to wait to find out.

    Vineyard Years Podcast Chapter 8

    Vineyard Years Podcast Chapter 8

    When a person has the kind of mad flight of fantasy that seems compatible with setting up their own vineyard, like me they probably don’t imagine the detailed and apparently mundane decisions that it will lead to. This podcast, for example, considers the finer points of tying up one’s vines with string or alternatively plastic. There turned out to be more to it than I had imagined. Funny thing is, making the right decision is quite important.
