Hi Rebecca/Ian,

Just wish to thank you for sharing your dream with us on the tour yesterday. We had a lovely time, you were both very informative and your passion for the project was very evident.

We look forward to visiting again to see developments and try your very own wine. We shall look out for your harvest time and if you require help would love to be involved.

Regards

David

 

Hi Becky,

I just wanted to say thanks for a great time yesterday.  We all really enjoyed the tour and it was great to see up close what's going on over on your side of the valley.

I hope the building work goes according to plan and we look forward to visiting again next year..

Thanks

Kate

 
Hi,

Thanks both for a very entertaining evening yesterday, we had a great time and we're looking forward to coming back during daylight hours to see the vineyard properly!Thanks also for showing us some of your F1 pictures and telling us a few stories about your time in F1 - that was fascinating in itself.

Wine and F1 are two of my favourite things, so for me it could only have improved by being able to watch a race at the same time!

Best of luck with both baby and vineyard, we hope to see you both again sometime soon.

Regards

Richard
