The Chef and Brewer pub, the Old Mill at Wakefield Road, Brighouse, is offering wine connoisseurs the dream-come-true opportunity to produce their favourite tipple direct from their own vine in a French vineyard.

The pub and restaurant is marking the start of the grape harvest by giving one customer the chance to win six bottles of wine from the vineyard - plus the chance to visit the place in one of France’s top wine regions where the grapes were grown.

Manager Elaine Spencer said: “Our guests regularly ask where our great range of wines come from so we are excited to be able to send someone direct to the region we source them from.

“The lucky aficionado will be able to say they are now their own wine producer and impress their friends with their expert vineyard knowledge.

“What’s more, with our wine list on offer at the Old Mill, they will never be far from an impressive wine when they get back home too. ”

To enter the competition visit the Chef and Brewer Facebook page - www.facebook.com/chefandbrewer - and answer the question by the closing date of Friday, August 30.

Maggie Womersley, formerly of the now-closed Whitehall at Hipperholme, has been in touch to tell Echo readers that the once popular Hipperstock that she used to organise at the pub will happen this year at the Hare and Hounds just up the road.

All the money raised is going to the charity Myeloma UK and there will be live bands, tombola, cake and bring and buy stalls plus raffles, a DJ and food stalls.

The event will be on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 25, from 2pm onwards and entrance is £5 per ticket which includes a raffle ticket. The full ticket price is going to the charity.
