Dunleavy Vineyard in Wrington was planted by Ingrid Bates in 2008, and its pinot noir rose won best local wine at the Bristol Good Food Awards.

Ingrid said: “We’re really excited about getting our first award - hopefully it’ll be the first of many.”

Ingrid, who worked in the media before chasing her dream to run a vineyard, sold out of her first bottles within three days when she released them last year.
