Thank you to all those who visited us over the Show days, lots of conversation and wine drunk! Great feed back and hopefully we’ll get out to a few more shows in the future! Thanks also to HSBC for sponsoring the Norfolk Local Producers’ stands.
Balmy summer evenings and acres of lush vine foliage seem a long way off during the chilly days of January pruning but here are some initial dates to look forward to!
We’ll meet at 5.30pm at Paddock Farm Shop, (with appropriate footwear for a walk!), an hour of walking and talking in the vineyard and then a tasting of a number of still and sparkling wines with a nibble or two, finishing at about 7.30/8pm. £10 pp. Please email us at email@example.com with dates and numbers and pay on the evening. Alternatively do drop in and book a place and pay at Paddock Farm Shop, NR14 8JT.

This isn’t exhaustive and we’ll probably add a few more depending on weather and how early the harvest comes.
If you can’t make an organised tour, there are maps of a self guided tour in the shop, open from 9-5 daily, closed on Sundays.
We look forward to hearing from you!
The much needed and long awaited late summer that we have just enjoyed has confounded all the expectation of a late harvest for 2016, and some of the grapes have reached ripeness by mid September. Great news for the vintage and hopefully even the stubborn late ripening varieties like Sauvignon Blanc will hit the target this year.
We won’t be holding any more public walks and talks due to the harvest and failing evening light, but do get in contact if you would like to come to one of the evenings next year.
We will have some evening tastings at the shop before Christmas – details to follow!
Our new 2015 rose is back in bottle and on sale in Paddock Farm Shop. This delicate Gold Rose, made from the gentle pressing of the Cabernet Cortis grape, is a unique golden wine with a pinkish hue. Hints of red currant on the palate, fresh and dry in character. A lovely summer wine.
Anglia Farmers will again this year be serving our Bacchus 2014 at the members lunch on the Wednesday and Thursday. We hope you have a wonderful show!
Come and enjoy a walk and talk around the Humbleyard vineyard, and then a tasting in the vineyard of our wines on the evening of the 15th June 2016. We are meeting at 6pm on the carpark at Paddock Farm Shop, NR14 8JT. Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into the shop to register if interested, thanks!
The long awaited first white and rosè sparkling wines arrived this week just in time for Christmas! Made in the traditional method of secondary fermentation, aged in the bottle, they are perfect for festive period celebrations. £21 a bottle, £20 for two or more, and a case of 6 for £110.
It’s here! Humbleyard High Spirit No.1, triple-distilled from our rose wine, is a sophisticated artisan drink to be enjoyed straight, over ice or as a cocktail base. A vibrant cherry pink in appearance, with full rich flavours and the kick of a spirit. Mellow notes of summer berries and hints of caramel and spice on the palate. High Spirit No.1, the spirit of rose, the perfect drink anywhere, anytime. At 30% ABV, it is in a beautiful 25cl bottle. On sale at Paddock Farm Shop and online.
Come and enjoy an informal evening at the vineyard and the farm shop at Paddock Farm, Mulbarton, at 4 pm on Wednesday the 30th of September. We’ll meet at 4 pm at the farm shop and then have a wander around the vines pre -harvest and then a tasting of the eight 2013/2014 wines with nibbles in the shop. Do let us know if you’d like to come via email. Look forward to seeing you!
The 2014 vintage wines are nearly all in store. Do visit the online shop or come and see us at Paddock Farm shop for the new Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc 2014 whites. The medium white Reichensteiner and medium 2014 Rose will be with us in the next fortnight. Tasting / Tour dates to come!
