“Hi Dennis and Miri, Thank you so much for today. The food was delicious, you really pulled the stops out. All feedback was positive, seriously brilliant!” Alisoun Hunter, Westerham.
A great day at the Squerryes vineyards in North Kent as professional pickers mingled with the “Friends of Squerryes” to pick some grapes, catch up and indulge in Deli Truck food.
These grapes will go to make the Squerryes Court award wining Methode Champenoise sparkling brut -with a perfect blend of 45% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir & 20% Pinot Meunier.
A strict rule, that guests had to pick grapes before they could have lunch from the Deli Truck was roundly ignored from the beginning. It was a great family day with many of the children loving the grape picking.
The estate asked us for good hearty food offerings to feed both the professional pickers and the “Friends of Squerryes” pickers and their families. Our legendary pulled pork, gourmet hot sausage in a brioche bun and chocolate brownies with amaretto cream went down a treat.
As you can see we were truly in the middle of a paddock and like many of our events we are completely self sufficient with our own generators, onboard fridges, freezers, gas grills and hot water.
Also a special thank you to John Mobbs from the highly acclaimed Great British Wine website for some of the photos (the good ones) on this post.
