TWO wines produced at a north Kent vineyard have scooped awards at one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world.

Meopham Valley Vineyard, Wrotham Road, Meopham, was honoured at the 2009 Decanter World Awards with the results set to be published in the magazine next month.

The 2005 Sparkling Rose was awarded a bronze medal in the competition and the 2004 Sparkling achieved commended status.

David Grey, 70, owner of Meopham Valley Vineyard, said: "I am delighted with this year's success as it validates our wines internationally as well as validating them to our consumers."

Mr Grey created the vineyard with his wife Pauline in 1991. In August last year, the Reporter revealed the Sparkling Rose 2005 would be stocked in Waitrose stores in Kent.

Christelle Guibert, Decanter's Tastings Director said: "This is a fantastic result for UK wines and further proof, should anyone need it, that home-produced bottles can compete at an international level.
