A new feature this year will be Copdock Hall opening its doors & grounds from 4pm to 8pm to the public for a wine tasting event.  The association will provide 20 trestle tables and tablecloths for entrants to showcase their wines (some of them award winning) to the public, a chance to 'meet the winemakers'.  Tables will be limited and will have to be alocated on a first come first serve basis.
