I think I have made it very clear how much I love the Vineyard at Stockcross,Ã‚Â I may have also mentioned that my favourite two food groups are champagne and canapes which the Vineyard excel at.Ã‚Â The event I attended was to promote the West Berkshire Business Awards (they have put in a community/charity category now but need sponsors for that if anyone should feel inclined to support it, West Berkshire Mencap would be very grateful).
Next week I will do a review of the hotel which I have never stayed in despite eating there often.Ã‚Â In my spare time I am writing a book, a novel, which is based at the Vineyard, it is an important part of the plot that the hotel has to be the ultimate in luxury and decadence so I am staying the night there, alone, to take notes and get the experience.Ã‚Â I will of course blog about the hotel stay and the food, I note that the menu has changed slightly although they are still offering the interesting ‘pick your own’ tasting menu which I lovel
I could actually be made very happy with a room full of canapes and champagne, it is like a reduced version of a tasting menu and avoids food envy which nearly always ends in tears (not mine as I get what I want!).
The Vineyard are very supportive of their local community, certainly West Berkshire Mencap have benefited from their generosity before in many ways and event the event I attended today was supported by the Vineyard.Ã‚Â Add that to the fact that The Vineyard has close links with Greenham Common Trust, a unique and wonderful grant making organisation and I hope you will agree that this is a great combination that West Berkshire and he surrounding areas should be proud of.Ã‚Â Now I just need someone to help me get a wine tasting course soÃ‚Â can appreciate the whole wine experience in a much more knowledgeable way.
