"Kieron's hard work and passion for English wine is clear through his work managing the vineyard here at Renishaw. I know the tours he conducts are very popular with visitors and he knows how to engage with novices and experts alike."
Alexandra Sitwell, owner of Renishaw Hall and Gardens

"My wife and I attended your vineyard tour in Sept and bought a bottle of your sparkling wine as a souvenir. As wine lovers we opened it for Christmas Dinner and introduced it to our guests: all were very pleased and surprised, what is going on in England's wine business! We wish you good luck for the upcoming season, and should you ever come to Austria we would be pleased to meet you, have a glass together and talk about wine!"
Best Regards! Bernhard

"Kieron has a very hard working and no-nonsense approach to the winery and is a great support in the whole wine making process. His sound advice and practical skills are an asset to what is a busy - and at times fraught - wine producing environment."
- Clive Vickers, owner and wine maker at Half Penny Green Vineyards, Staffordshire.
