Let’s get to know a bit more about the Young Gun of Wine Top 12 for 2017… the 12 best young and emerging winemakers in the country, each in the running for your People’s Choice Award.
Say hi to Charlotte Hardy @charlotte_dalton_wines.
Q. Who was the first person you told when you found out you were among the top young guns of wine?
A. We weren’t supposed to tell anyone were we? I did, of course, tell my partner. He said, “Fuck yeah!” then we carried on playing with grapes.
Q. What is your winemaking mantra?
A. Go gently, respect the grapes, the wine and all the people, and do it with love.
Q. You're in it to win it now... have you ever won anything before?
A. I won an egg and spoon race on my Shetland pony when I was about 6. And I always win wrestling matches at home. I suspect my partner lets me win but I like to think it’s my own special wrestling moves; the ice-drop-with-a-twist is my current favourite.
