Glyndwr Vineyard

I enjoyed a wonderful lunch time visit to this family run vineyard last Sunday, a birthday gift from last year. The family, Richard, Susie and Jo were very friendly and hospitable.  

The visit started with a glass of sparkling wine and horsdoeuvres and a talk from Richard.  Next came a walk around the vineyard with Jo explaining the processes involved in growing the right grapes etc.  After the walk came the wonderful buffet lunch, prepared by Susie, a glass of white wine followed by a glass of rose.  

Finally it was time to buy some wine to take home to enjoy at a later date – fantastic!

Really worth a visit!!


Weekend Sport

The season is coming towards an end and in both rugby and football this cannot come soon enough after poor seasons for both the Blues and the Bluebirds.

The Blues, having not qualified for a semi final in European competitions, have a weekend off.  Good luck to the Dragons tonight they take on Edinburgh having thrashed us two weeks ago in the quarter final, it will be good for Welsh rugby if they win and reach the final.

The Bluebirds have their penultimate home game tomorrow and my last home match as a season ticket holder, I cannot go to the last home match as we have the excitement of Judgement Day at the Millennium Stadium next week. C’mon Bluebirds let’s have a good result against Millwall tomorrow.

After all this sport I will probably need a few drinks on Sunday, looking forward to my Vineyard visit to Glyndwr Vineyard.

Derby Day!

A big match today as the Blues take on the Dragons at Dave (Rodney) Parade, or is it the other way around. Doesn’t matter as it is a very unpleasant ground for away supporters no matter what you call it!

Sadly, due to family committments, we will not be there but will be thinking of, and cheering for, the Blues from a distance – will also ask Tony to cheer for us too as he will be there representing our merry band!
