Having returned to my hometown of Brighton after working as a geologist in Australia for five years and spending a lot of my spare time visiting many of its world-renowned wine regions, I was amazed to discover that Sussex has its own well-established wine industry.

After visiting local vineyards and cheese makers and tasting their incredible wines and cheeses in the most beautiful scenic backdrop of the South Downs, I wanted to show my friends and family what was on their doorstep.
