Speaking of this meet the winemaker tasting, Diana said: "Bruce is a seriously sustainably focused producer.

"Obsessed with doing the right thing for his wines, vineyards, as well as all those he works with from employees to customers, Bruce produces wine crafted with love and positive intent to add joy to the world.

"With his mother being from the Isle of Tiree it’s not surprising that Bruce also has a passion for music.

"Having researched the science and conducted many comparative experiments, Bruce employs a Pipe Major to play the bagpipes to his wine barrels.

"Since the music travels through the molecules in the wine it helps develop them in quite a unique way. This is not the only unusual process in Bruce’s winemaking – you’ll just have to join us to find out more."
