Early in September, we took Hannibal off to exhibit at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials up in Stamford. Burghley is THE most enjoyable event in our wine calendar and this, our fourth year at the event, was no exception. Indeed, it turned out to be an incredible piece of success for us, with Hannibal Brown being awarded Winners in the Trade Stand Awards Competition. Just this week, we proudly received our engraved winner’s plate. It’s still safely wrapped in bubble-wrap until we bang a hole in the wall and hang it up.
So Burghley is over for another year, but Horse Of The Year Show at Olympia is looming large (17th to 23rd December). Buy your tickets as soon as poss – this is a very, very busy show. You’ll find Hannibal’s wines in the thick of the exhibitors, as always.
