FROME Valley Vineyard, near the village of Bishops Frome, is the venue for an afternoon of wine tasting to celebrate English Wine Week.

The event, on Wednesday, June 2, starts at 1pm with a lunch, celebrating regional food, followed by tutored tastings by some of the vineyard owners from the Heart of England Fine Foods.

A spokesman for the Heart of England said: "If you think you don't like English wines, think again. The region boasts many award-winning wines, from crisp sparkling wines to petulant roses."

Transport is being provided from Ledbury Railway Station at 12.30pm and will drop off at 4pm.
