Worth braving the cold at Leventhorpe Vineyard

One very cold Sunday morning in February I planned to visit Leventhorpe Vineyard, which was just half an hour or so away from where I was staying. However, the snow came down and I decided that the M1 wasn’t the most sensible place to be. A dog walk (thanks to Kruger & Scrumpy), cooked breakfast […]
