The Scottish vineyard making its own wine
Scotland as a wine producer? The implications of climate change may not make it such a fanciful idea, and Fife chef Christopher Trotter isn’t hanging around waiting for proof. Lynda Hamilton talked to him of grape expectations. In the spring of 2011, Christopher Trotter planted a 2.4-hectare vineyard on his Upper Largo estate on the southern coast of Fife. Facing his first winter as a pioneering Scottish viticulturist, Trotter, who’s Fife’s official ‘Food Ambassador’, isn’t at all worried about the threat of frost and snow, reports The List.
