Lea and Sandeman at Glastonbury

by Peter Ogilvy-Wedderburn

Sometimes Lea and Sandeman like to do things a bit differently and going to Glastonbury is certainly one of them. The location was the sensational Pennard Hill Farm private campsite and the instruction to supply the wine was snapped up instantly.

It was decided that a tasting would be held on the Thursday – a good way to let the 130 guests try the selection of wine that would be available to them over the next five days.

The line-up saw 20 of Lea and Sandemans favourite drops including:

2014 SANCERRE Chavignol Domaine Vincent Delaporte

2014-SANCERRE-Chavignol-Domaine-Vincent-Delaporte.240x700.13103
2014 BANDOL Rosé Domaine Tempier

2013 BARDA PINOT NOIR Bodega Chacra

2008 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO Fuligni

2008-BRUNELLO-DI-MONTALCINO-Fuligni.240x700.11783

These were all greatly received by the thirsty festival goers who on the whole were remarkably well educated in wine. The caterers put on some lovely toasted flat bread and irresistible Iberico Ham. This all made for a splendid event.

With the tasting over and the cleaning up done – I was offered a ticket for the evening at the Festival. I of course took up the opportunity and had quite the night taking in the sights and sounds of Glastonbury.
