If you can cast your mind back to last Thursday (19th), it was not the most delicious weather ever and 20 miles out of London the rain started. More to the point, the wind howled (think Roaring Forties, but in East Sussex..). Together they make for some moral sucking riding. There were three of us from the team of eight who were optimistic about the weather and had no rain jacket, needless to say we all got pretty wet, even those in wet weather gear.

The Schild Estate Barossa Valley Shiraz label has won a GOLD medal for the Best Designed Red Wine and a SILVER for the Best Designed Wine Range at the Harpers Wine and Spirit Design Awards in the UK! There were only 2 golds awarded in total for the Red category so to win one genuinely is a fantastic achievement.
