Rackleys vineyard is set high in the Chilterns village of Fawley, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, near Henley on Thames. Pruning takes place in February and March, whilst the summer is spent tending the vines. Friends gather to harvest the crop in mid October, when the grapes are transported in a vintage lorry to the award-winning wine maker, Nico Centonze, at the Stanlake Park Wine Estate near Twyford.
