THIS WEEK IN 1975: Reunited after 30 years – but only thanks to a kind stranger

Have your say

THERE seems to have been a huge amount of column inches written regarding the increasingly successful English wine industry. Fair enough because it really is exciting times in English wineries right now.

However, what about English wine makers making wine abroad? There are quite a few Brits abroad but one that has caught my eye is Stephen Cronk who, two years ago with his wife and three children, left the leafy suburbs of London for Provence in the South of France.

Stephen has just released his first wine but what is equally as interesting is the journey that he and his family have taken and it is all documented on their website mirabeauwine.com.
