Dorchester retirees taste delicious local wine at McCarthy Stone’s Casterbridge Court thanks to an exclusive event with an award-winning Bridport vineyard.

McCarthy Stone residents at wine tasting event

Guests at this Retirement Living development for the over 60s sampled a delightful array of different tipples from Furleigh Estate Vineyard, learning about the ingredients and production process along the way.

Furleigh Estate, nestled in the picturesque town of Bridport, is renowned for its commitment to crafting high-quality, locally-produced wines. The vineyard boasts a rich history and a dedication to sustainable winemaking practices, ensuring every bottle reflects the true essence of Dorset.

Lisa Ellingham, Manager at Furleigh Estate Vineyard, says, "We had such a fun time bringing our award-winning wines to the homeowners at Casterbridge Court. It was great to see everyone getting involved, discovering new flavours and expanding their wine knowledge."

Nicki Beswarick, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, added, "The exclusive tasting event went down as smoothly as the wine did with our homeowners. We hope our guests enjoyed visiting the development and getting to experience first-hand the vibrant lifestyle on offer at Casterbridge Court. With only 50% of apartments remaining, we’d like to encourage anyone interested in joining this welcoming and sociable community to get in touch."
