Without doubt, Glastonbury is the best festival in Britain and quite probably the world. The quality of music and the all-out entertainment is unrivalled. To get the most out of the Festival, you really need to be staying in luxurious accommodation and that is what I was lucky enough to do last week when I held a tasting at Pennard Hill Farm for 170 prestigious guests.
The line-up of wine was only just overshadowed by the line-up of performers on the Pyramid Stage and as the Sun went down, the first of the thirsty ravers arrived and were met with the following:
PROSECCO TREVISO Spumante Brut Il Follo
2014 CASA DA SENRA VINHO VERDE LOUREIRO Lima Quinta dos Abrigueiros
2014 VERDICCHIO CLASSICO SUPERIORE Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Azienda Agricola

It was another successful tasting with all the wines showing beautifully. The 2014 VERDICCHIO CLASSICO SUPERIOR & 2010 MARSANNAY Montagne Domaine Huguenot really stood out, both can be purchased on our website.
Following the tasting we enjoyed a delicious supper of duck breast cooked beautifully by Kaboola Catering before nipping down to the Festival to experience first-hand how bad the mud was!
