begone with you BAFTAS, we held our Muddy Hants winners drinks last week.

Smiles all round yesterday at our winners’ drinks hosted by Hattingley Valley Wines.

Nothing but the finest for my Muddy Award winners: we drank the Hampshire vineyard’s award-winning Classic Cuvée, sublime it was too, and nibbled very special smoked-trout blinis, produced locally by Chalkstream Foods. All this chased-down by a shot or two of  Test Valley Gin; our Best Local Food & Drink Producer, no less. *hic*
