Who, what, how

Lyme Bay Winery – make wine.

You don’t say.

English wine.



Good wine. Award-winning wine.

Made from real grapes. Real English grapes.

So what’s the angle?


Sometimes you don’t have to think too far.

Just make sure it’s good.

It is.

Dig out the wine writers. Get them samples. Send your best stuff.

Follow it up. Give them everything they need.

Prices. Stockists. Few more samples.

New wines, different wines, liqueurs and... mead.

Like mediaeval mead? Yes. Made from honey. 1000 calories a bottle – steady as you go.

Hit the trade media…

and consumer press…

and syndicated it round the county.
