Wine and Grape Growing
Start your wine and grape growing learning journey with us.
- Art of Grape Growing is a half day learning how to nurture your own garden grape vines to produce grapes for home wine making
- WSET Level 2 teaches you all about wine regions, flavours and educates your palette too!
Volunteers are very welcome especially in the busy growing season! If you love the great outdoors, are comfortable spending periods of time alone and would like to work in the vineyard then please get in touch. Most vineyard work is June-September each year and we ask that you can give us at least 8 hours a week during this period, that makes it worth while training you on each vineyard task. Hours are flexible, but we don’t work in the dark or the wet!
Send an email including a bit about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you.
Grape growing is the biggest growth sector in UK Agriculture. The UK industry is projected to be worth more than £1 Billion by 2040 and expected to employ 24,000 people. In the East Midlands, the Skuriat family have been growing grapes since 1976.
