Queen Elizabeth turns winemaker

January 30, 2017

According to The Telegraph:

Her Majesty has…her vineyard on the Windsor Great Park estate, where 16,700 chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier vines were planted on a seven-acre patch back in 2011.

By opening her own vineyard, Her Majesty followed in the footsteps of her ancestors as Henry II first cultivated grapes in the 12th Century at Windsor Castle.

And the Royals are no strangers to English sparkling wine having enjoyed it on special occasions, with the tipple being served at William and Kate’s wedding in April 2011.
