TWO North Somerset businesses are celebrating after receiving a Bristol Good Food Award.

Lye Cross Farm in Redhill and Dunleavy Vineyards in Wrington both won the prizes last week.

The judges chose Dunleavy Vineyards for the best local wine award, while Lye Cross Farm won the best local farm shop award.

The prizes were given out during a ceremony hosted by wine expert Angela Mount at Bristol Grammar School.

Lye Cross Farm Shop sells a variety of meat, fruit and vegetables, as well as its award-winning Cheddar cheeses.

This year, its cheese has won first prizes at the Devon County Show and gold at the Bath and West Show.

This was Dunleavy’s second win in a row at the Good Food Awards.

The vineyard’s Pinot noir rosé also won the International Wine Challenge in December, despite only selling its first wines in 2013.

The vineyard was planted by Ingrid Bates in 2008 and produces around 5,000 bottles of wine a year.
