See our Chairman at Hellens Garden Festival

Our Chairman, Heather Williamson will be at Hellens Garden Festival next month (June 2024) to chat to visitors about Foxbury Fields Vineyard whilst also helping fundraise for charity at the same time.

Heather and the team will be showcasing English wines made from grapes grown on vines in Bromsberrow at Hellens Manor in Much Marcle on June 8 and 9.


Heather says:

“It’s great to be back at Hellens Garden Festival this year and once again to be helping raise funds for two great local charities. We’ll be offering visitors the chance to try award-winning English wines and to chat to us about our vineyard, which is close to the venue.

“We’re big fans of this festival, as it’s multi-generational and dogs are welcome too! All profits from the event will be donated to two regional beneficiaries – St Michael’s Hospice and Back to the Wild. This year’s festival looks set to be as wonderful as the last. It’s great fun and includes lots of fabulous activities. Plus, the wonderful, landscaped gardens and grounds of Hellens Manor near Ledbury provide a spectacular backdrop.

“Hellens Garden Festival is a fabulous celebration of all that is typically English with plants, produce, crafts and sustainability at its heart, so our home-grown and locally made wines are a perfect fit.”

Award-winning wine

Foxbury Fields Vineyard produces small batch Bacchus and Ortega wines from grapes grown in a unique micro-climate at the foot of the Malvern Hills.

Heather continues:

“We’ve been winning regional and national awards for our wines for many years and have a range of accolades from silver and bronze to highly commended.

“We were awarded with bronze medals last year for both our 2021 Bacchus and Ortega wines from WineGB and a silver for our 2022 Ortega and our 2022 Bacchus at last year’s WineGB West awards event, which had a judging panel of industry experts including leading wine journalist, Susy Atkins.”

WineGB is the national association for English and Welsh wines and works to promote them.

Wyevale Hedges

Heather adds:

“The team from Wyevale Hedges will also have a stall at the festival. The website is designed to cater to individual customers looking to purchase hedging on a smaller, non-wholesale scale.

“It provides comprehensive details about each plant variety and the sizes available. The team will be happy to give lots of free help and advice for anyone planning on planting a hedge or hedges.”
