We explored the differences between Champagne, Prosecco, Franciacorta on a beautiful spring evening - and have learned to think twice before opting for the same old fizz for your next celebration!

From the Added Ingredients Deli to wine events and appearances... 

This is what Jill wrote in September 2022 to explain the changes that have happened:

As some of you will be aware I was off work for the whole of March with Covid. One of the reasons for taking the summer off was to try to re-energise myself as I was still feeling under the weather. It also seemed to be a good time to renew the floor (which was very in need of doing) and renew some of the electrics and paint the place throughout.

I fully expected to re-open in October but this is not going to happen.  I lack the physical and emotional energy necessary and with Long Covid having been diagnosed and fatigue, brain fog, hot sweats, heart palpitations and joint ache still being prevalent I really am not up to the job.
