English wine? Yes, please!

People who saw my blog post from York and Albany restaurant (that’s my old blog btw) may know that other than doing wedding and portrait photography I have a passion for taking pictures of original and distinctive looking interiors, especially if this includes food photography.

Last month I visited the Old Luxters Barn near Buckinghamshire as it’s the venue for Chris and Nikki’s wedding reception this summer. I was on my way home from another shoot so had my camera with me. And I’m glad I did because this wedding venue is more than just a venue. It is located within an English vineyard and brewery with its own very cute little cellar shop selling a variety of own wines, ales, liqueurs and local produce. Chiltern Valley Winery and Brewery have wine tours and tastings available. While I was taking photos I had my very own little tour and a bit of tasting by ever so cheerful Zoe who was looking after the shop that day. As a result of this tour I ended up with 2 bottles of award-winning Egnlish fine wine and I must tell you there’s nothing like drinking a glass of splendid wine when you know exactly where it comes from!
