Work commences on East Sussex Malbec project

Posted by Las Bodegas, Jul 07, 2015

On April 1st 2015 the first spade went into the ground to kick off a project that sees specially selected clones of ungrafted Malbec vines planted in East Sussex for (probably) the first time.

Vine cuttings from the Uco Valley have already been densely planted at 7 plants per 10 metre row with the long-term aim of producing half a dozen bottles of semi-drinkable wine.

Independent wine stores in the UK are said to be completely oblivious to this exciting new project. The experiment is likely to confirm the generally accepted view that planting Malbec in England is utterly pointless, especially when the terroir is hindered by the influence of a large trampoline.
