Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - ANDY CRONSHAW

I WAS in­tro­duced this week to a se­lec­tion of wines from Mead­ow­dale, an on­line re­tailer specialising in ‘eco­log­i­cal’ wines.

That’s a broad brush term but a quote from the web­site ex­plains: “All of our pro­duc­ers are united by a com­mon goal, to cre­ate the best nat­u­ral wines they pos­si­bly can while re­tain­ing a healthy re­spect for the land that pro­vides their liveli­hood.”

While that may seem a bit New Age, in my ex­pe­ri­ence pro­duc­ers who go by this ad­mit­tedly rather ex­pan­sive ap­proach in­vari­ably pro­duce good wine, just as farm­ers whose pro­duce is or­ganic tend to ex­cel in their cho­sen ar­eas.

And my ex­pe­ri­ences have been once again backed up by tast­ing some of Mead­ow­dale’s se­ri­ous,

fas­ci­nat­ing and af­ford­able wines. All are suit­able for ve­g­ans.
