“In the past we’ve found English Wines perhaps a slightly mystifiying subject, with little interest. What Kelvyn now brings is what has been needed for a long time, a fresh enthusiasm based on a very sound and practical knowledge which he delivers in such a vibrant way that you want to go out there and taste and buy what’s on your doorstep. Perhaps one of our countrys best exponents on the subject”
J.S.Woodhead, Chairman, Cumbria Wine Society
