Last month, we celebrated a third year exhibiting our wine wares at the world renowned Badminton Horse Trials.  

The stunning Beaufort Estate looks on Jean-Paul Deville’s Champagne Brut NV

Nestled in the Cotswold countryside, we enjoyed five days of wine chit-chat on our now, well established exhibitor stand inside the Rural Crafts Foodwalk.   It’s a fair old struggle to get wine stocks delivered to a field on the privately owned Beaufort Estate, but once there, this event runs like clockwork.  And this year, it saw record numbers of visitors (some say 200,000, others say 250,000 – it’s difficult to tell, but you know it’s busy!) clammering to watch the exciting spectacle of cross-country, or just happy to enjoy a day or two of amazing shopping.

Visiting Hannibal Brown Wines at any event is an essential opportunity to taste through many of our award-winning wines from the range.  There’s never a charge for tasting – just a great way of working out which wines you like and those which you less like.  Afterall, it would be a dull old world if we all liked/disliked the same thing!  Most popular in the line-up this year were the pinks – from bone dry Moroccan Zouina Rose, to medium dry Ernst Loosen’s Villa Wolf Rose (perfect with spicy food), not to mention the obligatory buck-loads of pink fizz that is on hand to freshen everyone up throughout the week.

Jude was on hand to offer her personalised wine label design service on-the-spot.   Our printer capability has recently been upgraded and her design skills go from strength to strength.  The push these days is towards corporate hospitality and client gifts, but we are still delighted to offer a minimum one bottle option for family celebrations, anniversaries, you name it.  Feel free to have a look at this gallery, with plenty of examples of past personalised wine labels.
