Little Wold Vineyard

Market Place Farm has been in the Wilson family for over 70 years. The farm was bought in 1947 by Robert Wilson when the ‘Cave Castle’ estate was split up. At the time Robert bought the farm, it was farmed in a traditionally mixed way. Based just a few miles from House of Townend, we are very delighted to be able to support this local winery as it goes from strength to strength.

Tasting Notes

Barley Hill is always a wonderfully aromatic wine and the 2020 vintage delivers again. The nose has delicate notes of white peach, apricot and orange peel. The palate has a subtle grapefruit hint that leads to a rounded mouthfeel with more stoned fruit flavours. The finish has lovely balanced acidity and great freshness, a real crowd pleaser.

Food Matches

The aromatic qualities and off dry notes make spicy food such as thai fishcakes or light curries a great match
