Yorkshire Heart Vineyard reaps what promises to be its best harvest ever

As the nights draw in, memories of one of the most glorious summers in years will begin to fade.

But the legacy of months of fine weather is just beginning to bear fruit as a Yorkshire vineyard reaps what promises to be its best harvest ever.

Chris and Gillian Spakouskas, who run Yorkshire Heart Vineyard, at Nun Monkton, in the Vale of York, are hoping to double the wine they make from this year’s harvest to 10,000 bottles.

In recent day friends, family and volunteers – picking grapes in Yorkshire still has novelty value – have been working the rows of vines, heavily hung with fruit.

It’s hard to imagine that just six years ago the field was under a crop of oil seed rape.

It’s the time of year when all the hard effort start to pay – a moment keenly anticipated, although with a shade of nerves.
