Once again we are participating in Real Wine Month for the month of May. We will be promoting organic, biodynamic and natural wines made by artisan growers and winemakers. We will also be offering wine flights of natural wines on Friday and Saturdays in May for you to discover the world of real wine! The Elderflower restaurant in Lymington will also have a selection of natural wines to enjoy by the glass.
