Vintage & Vine rallies to help small wine producer grow!

Dom Lamy, owner of Puro restaurant and wine bar Vintage & Vine is well known in Clevedon for his love of fine food and drink. He’s supporting Dunleavy Vineyards in their crowdfunding campaign to buy a small field on the outskirts of the city of Bristol!

Dom at Vintage & Vine is hosting a Dunleavy wine tasting event that you can purchase tickets for in support of Ingrid’s fundraising. Purchase tickets HERE 

 

 

Established by Bristol resident Ingrid Bates thirteen years ago, Dunleavy vineyards have become a success story in the Bristol and Somerset food and drink scene. Rather than focussing on ‘direct from vineyard’ sales, Dunleavy wines are sold through a host of small independent shops and many Michelin starred restaurants across the country. Many of these shops and restaurants feature in their crowdfunding video and also in a special reward people can buy as part of their campaign.

 

 

‘After the difficult year hospitality has had, we weren’t sure what our shop and restaurant customers would say when we asked for help but we were blown away with the response we received. We’ve been amazed at how many have offered to help us share our story on social media which has given our campaign a real collaborative feel.’

Ingrid set her vineyard up when she was in her 20’s. With high prices for land around the city, she quickly realised that leasing land was the only option open to her as a young person if she wanted to realise her dream of becoming a wine producer. A few years down the line, demand for her wine has rocketed. Dunleavy need more grapes to keep up with demand!

 

People pledge by buying the fantastic rewards on offer as part of the fundraising campaign. As well as making straight donations, you can adopt a baby vine or get tickets to a vineyard tour as well as tickets to some great wine and beer tasting events. One of which involves two of Bristol’s best beer producers; Wiper& True and Left Handed Giant.

They’re also offering the chance to have your or your pets face on the front of a wine label as well as tickets to a special vineyard harvest supper experience with food writer and chef Claire Thomson. Dunleavy are best known for their rosé wine but they’re making a special small batch of still white wine that will only be available to participants in the crowdfunding campaign.
